A few words

My research focuses on the transport and deposition of terrestrial particles by turbidity currents in the marine environment. My primary interests are to understand what role river-connected submarine canyons play in the trapping of organic carbon and thus CO2. I use methods that span the fields of sedimentology, organic geochemistry and field geology.

I have worked on the following study sites:

  • Lac Hazar, Faille Est Anatolienne, Turquie
  • Fjords de Colombie Britannique, Canada
  • Dépôts Crétacés, Patagonie chilienne
  • Canyon sous-marin du Congo, Afrique
