Joelle Barido-Sottani

Joëlle joined the lab in November 2021 as a Marie-Curie fellow. She is broadly interested in developing and implementing birth-death models for Bayesian phylogenetic inference, in order to understand better the underlying processes which give rise to phylogenetic trees. In particular, she contributes to the software frameworks BEAST2 and RevBayes. Her current research focuses on models with lineage-specific variation in birth and death rates, and their use in full phylogenetic inference.

Jérémy Andréoletti

Jérémy is a student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Masters IMaLiS at the ENS and Mathematics for Life Sciences at the Université Paris-Saclay. Interested in the evolution of biodiversity and its links with environmental drivers, his internship consists in developing models integrating several types of fossil and genetic data.

Octavio Jimenez Robles

Octavio is an avid field naturalist with a research background in community ecology, biogeography, natural history, and ecophysiology. He is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow working in collaboration with Craig Moritz at the Australian National University. His project tackles the impact of biotic interchanges on diversification using phylogenetic and macroevolutionary approaches.

Isaac Overcast

Isaac develops models and machine learning inference procedures for investigating how biodiversity accumulates in ecological communities. His models integrate over multiple levels of biological organization, including species abundances, genetic diversities, and phylogenetic relationships. He joined the lab as a postdoc in November 2019 and is funded by the H2020 Twinning grant iBioGen.

 

Hélène Morlon

Ignacio Quintero

Ignacio is broadly interested in studying variation in biodiversity from an evolutionary perspective. Specifically, he uses and implements phylogenetic tools, such as inference of diversification rates, trait evolution, and phylogeography, to gain a more mechanistic understanding on the origin of diversity patterns. He joined the lab as a post-doc in January 2019, funded by the ERC grant PANDA. He is now funded by his own Marie-Curie fellowship INSANE.

Hélène Morlon

Sophia Lambert

Sophia is a PhD student in macroevolution studying the diversification of microorganisms. Specifically, she is interested in the ecological and metabolic strategies of prokaryotes and micro-eukaryotes and how these can explain their diversification dynamic. She thus develops diversification models adapted to microbial datasets, fast inference techniques using deep learning and applies them to reconstructed microbial phylogenies. She is a student from the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) in Paris.

 

 

Hélène Morlon

Benoit Perez

Benoît is a PhD student from the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Interested in the interactions between complex organisms and their unicellular symbionts, he is working on models of coevolution between hosts and microbiota. He is a student from the Master IMaLiS at the École Normale Supérieure and the Master Ecology, Biodiversity and Evolution at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie.

 

 

Visitors

Hélène Morlon

Alfried Vogler

Alfried Vogler is on sabbatical from Imperial College London and the Natural History Museum. He studies the phylogenetics and diversification of the Coleoptera (beetles). He is compiling an increasingly complete tree that integrates all available genome sequences, phylogenetic markers and (meta)barcoding. His visit is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. He is part of the iBioGen project.

Hélène Morlon

Romain Watteaux

Romain is a postdoctoral researcher at the Statione Zoological Anton Dohrn in Napoli. He is currently hosted in Hélène's group. Romain studies how fluid dynamics affects growth and distribution of plankton in the oceans. He is a collaborator of Guilhem's study of drivers of community assembly in the eukaryotic plankton.

Hélène Morlon

Gisela Kopp

Gisella is a postdoc fellow in the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithologie. She obtained funding to come in Paris for several visits. Gisella is interested in understanding how behaviour, such as spatio-temporal grouping patterns and dispersal, impact genetic diversity and evolutionary processes, such as local adaptation, genetic differentiation, and speciation.

Hélène Morlon

Marius Somveille

Marius is a postdoctoral fellow of the Edward Grey Institute at Oxford and visits the lab regularly. His research interests lie in understanding the processes underlying biodiversity patterns. In particular, his work focuses on the macroecology and macroevolution of bird migration.

 

Hélène Morlon

Renske Onstein

Renske is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation to do a postdoc with Hervé Sauquet in collaboration with our group. She works on fruit trait evolution and the effects of fruit traits on diversification rates in the custard-apple family (Annonaceae).
