Please contact me about giving a talk. I'd be happy to come speak at your Department/University or to contribute virtually to your Seminar Series.

Past talks

May, '21. 33rd PopBio Conference, Prague. I presented my talk Effects of ecotype identity and diversity on the response of duckweed communities to salt stress. Thanks to the PopBio organizers for their effort, it was a great conference.

May, '21. Department of Aquatic Ecology, EAWAG, Dübendorf

April, '21. University of Zurich At the very first URPP Mini Symposium at the University of Zurich I presented for the very first time my new research: Effects of ecotype identity and diversity on the response of duckweed communities to salt stress.

Nov, '20. UNB, Fredericton I gave a Departmental Seminar entitled Adaptation to the biotic and abiotic environment increases stability and functioning in grassland and freshwater ecosystems at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, Canada. Thanks to the grad students for inviting me!

Aug, '20. ESA annual meeting 2020. I virtually contributed to the Organized Oral Session 54 on Data Challenges in Biodiversity Science and talked about the contribution of rapid evolution to ecosystem functioning and stability in a grassland biodiversity experiment (my PhD work!).

Dec, '19. BES Annual Meeting, Belfast Oral presentation in the "Community Ecology" session at the annual meeting of the British Ecological Society. I presented my paper in preparation on "Freshwater Community Stability in Stressful Times". I had a great time at the meeting, catching up with many old friends and making wonderful new ones.

Oct, '19. EEL seminar, Redpath museum, Montreal I talked about my paper in preparation on "Freshwater Community Stability in Stressful Times". It was great fun to present in the legendary Redpath seminar room in front of so many people I know.

Oct, '19. RIVE Seminar at the Université de Québec à Trois-Rivières It was such a pleasure and honor to have had the opportunity to present my PhD work and my postdoctoral research at the RIVE seminar series. Thanks to Prof. Raphaël Proulx for inviting me.

August, '19. CSEE Annual Meeting, Fredericton Oral presentation at Eco Evo Ento 2019 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I presented my paper in preparation on "Freshwater Community Stability in Stressful Times".

July, '19. URPP GCB Conference, Switzerland I gave an ignite talk (and present the corresponding poster) at the URPP GCB Conference in Monte Verita, Switzerland on Global Change and Biodiversity: Integrating the impact of earth and world drivers across scales. The title of my talk was "Freshwater Community Stability in Stressful Times".

December, '18. QCBS Symposium, Montreal I presented some first results of LEAP 2018 about community stability and how it is influenced by acidification. Details about the Symposium you can find here

November, '18. Eco-Evolutionary Symposium at the Redpath Museum, Montreal I gave a short presentation about my PhD research on community evolution in grassland communities.

February, '18. Biology18 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland I presented my thesis chapter about how community evolution influences community stability in a grassland biodiversity experiment.

December, '17. BES annual meeting in Ghent, Belgium I presented my thesis chapter about how community evolution influences community stability in a grassland biodiversity experiment.
