I study Northern mosquitoes, from Fairbanks (Alaska) to Kuujjuaq (Nunavik), I spent multiple summers up North capturing them. When I am not serving as humain bait in the field, I am never far away from my microscope. I am interested in mosquito as vectors for zoonotic diseases, my work focuses on describing Northern mosquitoes species and identifying possible vectors.

I am part of Patrick Leighton’s lab at Université de Montréal, but I am also affiliated with Université de Moncton and Institut Pasteur.
