I am queer and I am a paleontologist//


I’m a french PhD vertebrate paleontologist and taphonomist working at the Museum national d’Histoire naturelle of Paris. The main project of my work is to reconstruct the fossilized Lower Cretaceous terrestrial, swampy paleoecosystem of Angeac-Charente Lagerst├Ątte (exceptionally well preserved site). It includes reconstruction of the paleoenvironment, the paleocommunity, the intraspecific and interspecific relationships, as well as paleobehaviour of the present vertebrates (as social and predatory behaviours). I work about numerous species of dinosaurs, crocodiles, turtles… This study is based on multiproxy data (fieldworks, sedimentology, traceology, ichnology, taphonomy, experimental taphonomy, spatial analysis SIG and statistics) of the vertebrate macroremains (bodyfossils and ichnofossils as tooth marks on bones, dinosaur footprints in sediments and coprolites) as well as their spatial and sedimentological context. I also work on the evolutionatry history of caseids, large iguane-like Permian amniotes.
