Research topics: Active Tectonics, Morphogenesis, Geodynamics, Natural Hazards and Erosion.
Confrontation of different approaches: tectonics and structural geology, geomorphology, seismotectonics:
- Study of active faults and assessment of seismic hazard: characterisation of deformation parameters from the seismic cycle scale to the plate tectonic scale.
- Analysis of deformation processes and associated phenomena (magmatism, stress and strain fields, salt tectonics, etc.).
- Geomorphology, geoarchaeology: archaeological and natural risks
Study areas: Peru, W. USA, Sumatra Arc and Sulawesi Fault (Indonesia), North Anatolian Fault (Turkey), El Pilar and Bocono Fault (Venezuela), Precordillera Fault (Argentina), SE France, Italy, Iran, Tunisia, Taiwan, China, Morocco, Armenia...
