What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I did a bachelor in biology at Laval University and continue there for my master in biology too. The axe of my master is benthic ecology. I want to understand the role of sea pens density (variety of soft corals) on infauna in the Gulf of Saint-Lawrence in Canada. Another part of my projet is to see different type of monitoring for those kind of corals ecosystem.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

I want to learn more about the process of review and develop my competence in science communication because I want to axe my career on that. I also want to learn more about preprint because I think its a first to think more about open science and help each other as scientist.

What are you excited about in science communication?

As a scientist I’m exited to communicate the fruit of my work to other scientist to help them in their own project with my result or even datas. I’m exited too to help the politic in the making law decision and the public as well. I think it’s important for the science to be open and comnunicate to everyone who want to know about it.

Ask me about….

I consider myself a little geek, I like anime super hero stuff like Marvel and DC, the classic movies (I’m doing a Harry Potter marathon EVERY christmas, It’s not an option not to do it). I’m still new at gaming, but really like it when I find the time to play. I’m also a passionate of horses and other farm animals, my dream is to have my little farm with all kinds of animals (but for now I just have two cats). Of course with that I love gardening and take care of plants (I can’t count de number I have in my appartement right know and with my house next year it’s certainly going to become even bigger, but I love it!!) and I have some outside plants (in the summer) too and try tu cultivate vegetables indoors and outdoors plant. So yeah, I’m a geek girl who love the farming life, animals and biology.
