Personal profile


Owner of a Master in Science, obtained after the defence in the University of Liège (2015-2016) of a master thesis on Titanosaur eggs and eggshells.

PhD student (FRIA fellowship, from 2016 onwards) enrolled in the University of Liège, EDDyLab research unit, and in the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, AMGC research unit. My research is focused on gigantism and dwarfism patterns within Sauropoda with an emphasis on titanosaurs, the most derived sauropods, and insularity. Bone histology and biomechanics are the main methods I apply to propodials (humeri and femora) to decipher macro- and histostructures and how they interplay from a paleobiological point of view. Big and dwarfed mammals are also studied to compare dinosaurian data to (sub-)recent animals which lineages are still roaming the Earth.
