Accelerated Taxonomy


Integrated Monography , Africa


Botany, phylogeny, taxonomy.

I am interested in the classification and evolution of hairsedges (Cyperaceae) in Africa. Using an integrative approach, combining phylogenomics, morphology, ecology and biogeography, my project aims to gain a clear understanding of the diversity and evolution of Bulbostylis in Africa.

Prior to and alongside my PhD, I am working on the taxonomy and the conservation of Xyridaceae and Gesnericaceae in New Caledonia.
