Personal profile

Personal information

I study landscapes, their detrital products, and sedimentary archives to better understand how the Earth’s surface is shaped by tectonics, climate, and lithology, and how it has evolved through time. I generally take advantage of Quaternary records, for which the complete sediment routing system is still active from source to sink, and for which high-resolution climate and tectonic constraints can be obtained. This allows me to link active processes to the sedimentary record, and study the processes and rates of erosion and sediment production, transport and deposition under varying climate, tectonics and lithologies. I use a combination of sedimentological and geomorphological field data, geochemistry, geochronology, remote sensing, and numerical modelling.
