As an international multidisciplinary research and teaching centre and a centre of excellence in terms of human and technical resources, CEREGE covers almost the entire field of environmental geosciences.
My major research interests are Paleoceanography and paleoclimatology at millennial to orbital timescales for the last ten million years to better understand processes affecting climate variability. I use geochemical tools (isotopes and elemental composition) to reconstruct deep-water circulation, seawater surface temperature, redox state of sediments in relation to oceanic circulation and/or surface biological production, and detrital elements inputs to evaluate river and dust inputs. Studying the behaviour of these geochemical tools in the modern condition is also my research focus. I collaborate with climate modellers to examine processes behind proxy reconstructions.
