Olivier is a lucinid clam researcher from Guadeloupe. He has contributed the most amazing break-throughs in lucinid research from inducing spawning, to larval development, uptake of the symbiont, experimental incubations, and adult starvation; just to mention a few. Olivier has been very supportive to our group and he would not hesitate to help us when we are in need of advice, suggestions, or even alive clams. Also his former Ph.D. students Jean-Marie Volland/Twitter and Nathalie Elisabeth have been exceedingly nice to us. Olivier is a great mentor and we hope to keep our collaboration strong.
