I am a tenure-track researcher/assistant professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, University of Toulouse 1 Capitole.

I am mainly interested in social evolution, and use mathematical models and tools from various theoretical frameworks to explore the strategic, demographic, and ecological factors influencing the evolution of social traits.
