City, state, country:

BSc. student in environment and forest sciences (Laval University) and graduated bioecology technician.

Entomology is my passion since my young age. I'm a member of the Association des Entomologistes Amateurs du Québec (AEAQ) since 2015. I'm also familiar with vascular plants, fungi and freshwater mussels. I'm also working on beetles diversity projects in the Laurentian Forestry Center (NRCan) in Quebec City.

My main interests are in the following groups: Nitidulidae, Buprestidae, Cerambycidae, Carabidae, Pentatomoidea and Araneae. I occasionally do inventories of freshwater mussels (Class: Bivalvia) in the province of Quebec.

Strong interest in North American species of sap-feeding beetles (Nitidulidae). I'm currently working on an inventory and a guide of Quebec and Eastern Canada species.
