Benjamin obtained a bachelor's degree from the University of Caen (Normandie, France) before turning to Quebec where he joined the Lazar lab at the University of Quebec in Montreal.

 

Passionate about microbiology, he is carrying out his master's project on the biogeography of microorganisms in subsurface environments . This project aims to determine the influence of a large number of variables on the diversity of microbial communities in the Laurentian region. In this context, he uses molecular biology and bioinformatics, which are techniques essential for the interpretation of high throughput sequencing results.
