Since starting my scientific carrier, my research has been focused mainly on two different domains:  (1) Plant biology and resources via a Master Degree and a 6 months study on the Douglas fir cold hardiness carried out in British Columbia at the University of Victoria, and (2) microbiology with my current PhD work at the Environmental Microbial Genomics Group.  These  two domains may  seem  far  apart,  but  are  not  if  considered  from  an ecological  point  of  view,  thus  explaining  my  future  research perspectives.  I  would  like  to merge  the  knowledge  gathered  in each  domain  in  order  to  study  relationship  between  plant  and micro-organism and how there are shaping each other in the light of evolution. Multidisciplinary approaches are difficult to address, especially if they aim for the very edge of science. This is  the  path  I  choose  as  I  think  we  need  people  working  at interfaces and creating connections between different domains  in order  to  go  even  deeper  in  our  understanding.
