Biographie

As Head of Science at the CJBG my role is to oversee and facilitate the research activities in the CJBG, in the framework of the CJBG Scientific Strategy. I represent the instuitution in international organisations, such as CETAF or the IAPT, as well as within Switzerland, such as SwissCollNet. I am interested in botanical nomenclature and link this with my research on bryophytes (Dicranum, Dicranaceae, bryophytes from Geneva and Madagascar) or projects in the bryophyte herbarium collection. I am particularly interested in the acrocarpous mosses, the Dicranidae, and the evolution of the peristome in this monophyletic group.
