I am interested in the symbiotic relationships that exist between diverse eukaryotic microorganisms (aka protists), between protists and animals, and between protists and prokaryotes up to the derivation of cell organelles. By combining lab techniques with phylogenomics (eToL project), I study the origin and specificity of these relationships up to cospeciation events. I further use comparative genomics to investigate the molecular prerequisites for these associations and study underexamined species to discover new biological processes and their ecological implications.
