Ignacio Quintero

Ignacio is broadly interested in studying variation in biodiversity from an evolutionary perspective. Specifically, he uses and implements phylogenetic tools, such as inference of diversification rates, trait evolution, and phylogeography, to gain a more mechanistic understanding on the origin of diversity patterns. He joined the lab as a post-doc in January 2019 and is funded by the ERC grant PANDA.

Ana Silva

Ana is a biologist broadly interested in understanding species phylogeographic patterns and how they affect macroevolutionary rates and ultimately biodiversity. She studied fire salamanders patterns in Portugal for her master, and skinks phylogeography and introgression in Australia for her PhD. She currently analyses the link between intraspecific genetic diversity and diversification rates. She joined the lab as a post-doc in May 2018 and is funded by the ERC grant PANDA.

 

Hélène Morlon

Carmelo Fruciano

Carmelo is interested in phenotypic evolution and in the development and use of geometric morphometric methods. He has also a keen interest in integration of various tools and data types and in the relationships between integration and diversification. Carmelo joined the lab in February 2018 and has held previous postdoctoral positions at the University of Konstanz (Germany) and Queensland University of Technology (Australia). Carmelo is funded by Hélène's ERC grant PANDA.

Sophia Lambert

Sophia is a PhD student in ecology keen to learn more about macroevolution. She is interested in phylogenetic approaches to understand biodiversification, and in their applications to the microbial world. She is working on a method for studying diversification when the number of species is unknown. She is a student from the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) in Paris.

 

Hélène Morlon

Leandro Aristide

Leandro is a biologist and primatologist with a broad interest in understanding diversity changes at macroevolutionary scales using phylogenetic approaches. During his PhD he studied the neotropical monkey's radiation, mainly focusing on their phenotypic evolution. He joined the group as a postdoc in April 2017. Leandro is funded by Hélène's ERC grant PANDA.

Benoit Perez

Benoît is a PhD student from the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Interested in the interactions between complex organisms and their unicellular symbionts, he is working on models of coevolution between hosts and microbiota. He is a student from the Master IMaLiS at the École Normale Supérieure and the Master Ecology, Biodiversity and Evolution at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie.

Hélène Morlon

Odile Maliet

Odile is now a postdoc in the lab. She did her PhD here, co-supervised by Nicolas Loeuille. She is working on quantitative phylogenetic approaches for detecting the effect of species interactions on diversification. Odile is a former student of the Ecole Polytechnique. She is funded by the ERC grant PANDA.

Hélène Morlon

Guilhem Sommeria Klein

Guilhem is now a postdoc in the lab. He did his PhD with Jérôme Chave in Toulouse, co-advised by Hélène. Guilhem was trained in physics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon. After developing theoretical models of biodiversity adapted to the analysis of environmental DNA, he is now applying some of his developments to the TARA Expeditions data. Guilhem is funded by the ERC grant PANDA.

 

 

Visitors

Hélène Morlon

Alfried Vogler

Alfried Vogler is on sabbatical from Imperial College London and the Natural History Museum. He studies the phylogenetics and diversification of the Coleoptera (beetles). He is compiling an increasingly complete tree that integrates all available genome sequences, phylogenetic markers and (meta)barcoding. His visit is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. He is part of the iBioGen project.

Hélène Morlon

Romain Watteaux

Romain is a postdoctoral researcher at the Statione Zoological Anton Dohrn in Napoli. He is currently hosted in Hélène's group. Romain studies how fluid dynamics affects growth and distribution of plankton in the oceans. He is a collaborator of Guilhem's study of drivers of community assembly in the eukaryotic plankton.

Hélène Morlon

Gisela Kopp

Gisella is a postdoc fellow in the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithologie. She obtained funding to come in Paris for several visits. Gisella is interested in understanding how behaviour, such as spatio-temporal grouping patterns and dispersal, impact genetic diversity and evolutionary processes, such as local adaptation, genetic differentiation, and speciation.

Hélène Morlon

Marius Somveille

Marius is a postdoctoral fellow of the Edward Grey Institute at Oxford and visits the lab regularly. His research interests lie in understanding the processes underlying biodiversity patterns. In particular, his work focuses on the macroecology and macroevolution of bird migration.

 

Hélène Morlon

Renske Onstein

Renske is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation to do a postdoc with Hervé Sauquet in collaboration with our group. She works on fruit trait evolution and the effects of fruit traits on diversification rates in the custard-apple family (Annonaceae).

 

Hélène Morlon

Florian Hartig

Dr. Florian Hartig from Freiburg visits the group to work on Bayesian models as part of a Procope mobility grant.

 

Hélène Morlon

Brian Maitner

Brian is a PhD student in the Enquist lab at the University of Arizona. Brian is broadly interested in community assembly with a current focus on community phylogenetic patterns. Brian visits the lab as part of an exchange program between the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the University of Arizona.
