My research focuses on the study of large active faults (Asia, Iran, Caucasus, Mediterranean) and on the application of optically stimulated luminescence to active tectonics. I am particularly interested in the dating of paleoseismic events in order to better constrain the seismic cycle on active faults.

I am currently developing two scientific aspects in the framework of my activities as a teacher-researcher. My research activities mainly concern methodological developments in luminescence but also the development and use of very high resolution topographic data (photogrammetry, LiDAR, satellite images, virtual reality) for their applications in active tectonics and paleoseismology.

I am in charge of the OSL laboratory at CEREGE.
