Teaching

Every field of Behavioural Ecology, which is the evolutionary study of behaviour
  • I teach mainly at Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse where I give lectures in L2 to M2.
  •  I also teach at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ULM) a few hours per year.
  • I supervise training stages, PhD students and Postdocs. The last two categories are detailed below.

  • Anne-Cécile Dagaeff : Cultural evolution in Drosophila melanogaster (PhD started in 2011, with a French PhD grant).
  •  Xiaobo Wang : Cultural evolution in Fish (PhD started in 2012, with a Chinese PhD grant).
