M. Sc. student in Forest Entomology at Laval University, conducting research in beetle communities temporal changes within undisturbed forest stands in La Mauricie National Park (Laval University & the Laurentian Forestry Center).

I hold a B.Sc.A. degree in Environmental Sciences, and my passion for entomology and taxonomy has driven me to pursue graduate studies in this field, intending to make it my future career. While insect identification is my primary interest, I believe in delving beyond the individual insect, considering a holistic ecological perspective that encompasses factors like phenology and trophic guilds. With this in mind, I've been particularly interested in the study of urban fauna in composting environments and the exploration of old-growth forests.

I spend most of the summer months exploring various ecosystems in eastern North America in search of several insect groups: Nitidulidae (currently working on a guide of Eastern Canada species), Staphylinidae, Elateridae, Buprestidae, and more recently Membracidae, and Chrysididae. Beyond entomology, I have also participated in taxonomic studies of freshwater mussels (Class: Bivalvia) and contributed to numerous Bioblitz events over the years.

While I strive for accurate identifications, I consider myself a perpetual learner. Please don't hesitate to tag me in your observations or provide corrections if needed. I am always eager to expand my knowledge and enhance my skills 😄
