As a senior lecturer, my general research theme is the quantification of elemental transfers.
In this research, with multidisciplinary, national and international partners, I am working on the contribution of natural radioisotopes of the uranium series as tracers and chronometers.
My expertise in isotopic measurement by mass spectrometry, in-situ radioactive counting, etc. allows the study of current (salinisation of coastal aquifers, quantification of flows at the ocean-continent interfaces) and past (ancient hydraulic structures, tuffs, speleothems) water resources. In connection with climate sciences and archaeology, I contribute to the characterization of hydrological conditions, based on the study of carbonate archives at high temporal resolution.
I use this knowledge to teach from the Bachelor's to the Master's level and to supervise doctoral students.
