I am interested in understanding the links between microbial taxonomic diversity and function, and the processes they carry out in aquatic environments, in order to have a better comprehension of their role in the biogeochemical cycles. Over the last decade, I have been investigating the patterns of temporal and spatial variation of microbes in aquatic food webs, and exploring their ecological role as primary producers, bacterial grazers, nutrient remineralizers or parasites in freshwater, coastal and marine systems. This exploration is conducted by applying a combination of standard molecular tools (amplicon sequencing of environmental rDNA genes, FISH specific countings) with state-of-the-art approaches (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, single cell genomics). More recently, I have broadened my field of research, from single species to metacommunities, by investigating the whole microbial communities involved in the cycling processes of biogenic trace gases and marine sulfur through the study of their taxonomic diversity and the identification and quantification of functional genes in the marine planktonic communities from various marine surveys.
