Dr Fournier-Level heads a research group interested in the population genomics of adaptation to environmental stresses. One of the central goals of the group’s research is to develop quantitative genetics models predicting the evolution of fitness traits and the fate of genetic diversity underlying it in the context of climate change. He also uses insects and plants as models to assess the risk of emergence of new pests resisting to current chemical management tools. The group has broad expertise in genomics, quantitative genetics, climate modeling and high throughput behavioural assays in insects.
