I use sedimentary archives to study the links between Climate, Tectonics, and Life through geologic time. My work involves geological fieldwork and sampling, geochemical and geochronological analyses. I date sedimentary deposits and decipher their sedimentological and geochemical features to reconstruct past climates, paleogeographies, and ecosystems. I closely collaborate with structural geologists, paleontologists, paleobotanists, and other sedimentary geologists to address biogeographical and geological questions in the deep-time (million of years).
