I am a junior geologist specialised in sedimentology.

    My research interests sit in the general problematic in Earth Sciences that concern the linkages between tectonics, erosion and sedimentation at basin-scale. I focus on basin dynamics in response to external forcing using the sedimentologic and geochemical record from marine and continental environments. My work associates field data and lab analyses to interpret palaeoenvironments, their depositional dynamics as well as their petrographic composition and geochemical characteristics.

    During my PhD thesis, my research treated of the morphological evolution of the Western European Alps since their formation based on the study of the drainage network in the French South Alpine Foreland Basin. I used various tools including mapping, logging, facies analysis, petrography, fluid inclusions ans structural studies to identify a drainage network in the foreland basin and its evolution in space and time since its formation at about 45 Ma.
     I did a postdoc last year at the Laboratoire Biogéosciences (Dijon). Using a
coupled sedimentological and geochemical approach on various Smithian-Spathian sections from the Utah Basin, our objectives are to decipher the environmental conditions that contributed to the biodiversity recovery after the major P/T crisis.

    I have obtained a two years postoc fellowship at the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans (Saint-Etienne). The aim of my project is to constrain with high resolution the environmental conditions leading to the development of early life at 3.2Ga. A very exciting and ambitious archean adventure !
