I did my undergraduate studies at University of Quebec at Rimouski in marine biology. After completing my BSc in 2011, I started a Master focusing on the Arctic and joined the benthic laboratory at ISMER.

Chalut 1Bivalves can be used as marine archive records to assess the variability of marine ecosystems over decades to centuries and therefore estimate the potential joint effects of climatic change and increasing anthropogenic activities on Arctic populations. In this project, we investigate the impacts of environmental variations on fjordic bivalves’ annual growth dynamic using sclerochronology.

The specific project/thesis aims project are: 1. Determine bivalves’ annual growth patterns within fjords 2. Pair up observed growth anomalies to environmental parameters temporally

This project is directly related to CHONe theme I, Marine Biodiversity.
