I am working in the broad field of Human Evolutionary genetics with a special focus in Human population genetics.

The three main questions for my research are:
- peopling history
- detecting and estimating natural selection
- evaluating the importance of social behaviour and their transmission in the evolution of our species

In practice in the team we are working on 3 areas in the world for which we have an interdisciplinary approach:
- the Quebec population
- Central Africa: the Pygmies and their neighbours
