Hello World!

François Keck

My name is François Keck.

I'm an ecologist and postdoctoral researcher at INRA Hydrobiological Station of Thonon-les-Bains, on the shores of Lake Geneva. My research interests include dynamics of freshwater periphitic communities, biomonitoring with diatoms, statistical analysis and phylogenetics. I'm also a R-addict, crunching ecological data all day long and developping scripts and packages.
