Biography:

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, with the aim of making 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 hardwood forest species.

My main focus is on North American species of sap-feeding beetles (Nitidulidae) and Short-winged Flower Beetles (Kateretidae). I'm currently working on an inventory and a guide of Quebec and Eastern Canada species. My other interests include:
-Buprestidae
-Staphylinidae
-Elateridae
-Carabidae
-Membracidae
-Chrysididae
-Araneae
