Entomology technician specialized in the identification and inventory of Odonata order. I work in Biological control and Agricultural Entomology.

Since 2010, I am active member of the Initiative for Odonata Atlas of Quebec ( I focus mainly on Libellulidae, Cordulidae and Zygoptera order.

In my free time, I work as a volunteer to help universities and research centers to identify Odonata specimens. I also participated in the edition of the guide of Larvae and Exuvia of Dragonflies and Damselflies of Quebec : Genus key determination (Hutchinson & Ménard, 2016).
