About me

I am an Associate Professor of the Marine Biology Lab at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) since October 2012. I received my PhD from the ULB in 2004, and then joined the ANDEEP3 expedition to the Southern Ocean onboard the RV Polarstern, before taking the lead of two projects aiming at offering free and open access on Antarctic biodiversity for science, conservation and management purposes (SCAR-MarBIN and ANTABIF). My research presently focuses on Polar biodiversity/biogeography, stress eco-physiology and biodiversity informatics. I sit on a number of international scientific and conservation program steering committees, such as the SCAR Expert Group on Antarctic Biodiversity Informatics, or the Antarctic Environments Portal initiative.
