Matthieu obtained his PhD at the University of Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) in 2012. He was a MarineGEO postdoc at the NMNH from 2013 to 2015 before moving to STRI in 2016. His research broadly focusses on understanding the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that drive patterns of diversity in the oceans. Matthieu also studies the role of trophic and symbiotic interactions in promoting the stability and resilience of marine communities as they face unprecedented changes using a combinations of broad scale surveys, molecular and experimental approaches.
