    Welcome to my professional website. I'm a maître de conférences (associate professor) in the Department of Earth Sciences in Lyon. 

My main research topics are sediment transport, erosion and instabilities. More generally, I'm interested in complex fluid dynamics and its applications to geophysics and biology. I have previously worked on the rheology of foams in Trinity College Dublin and on the hydrodynamics of plankton swimming in the DTU Center for Fluid Dynamics.


New paper out! The results of an 8-year long field survey of the displacements of boulders in a river in Guadeloupe.

New paper out! A combined field, experimental and theoretical study: How do boulders end up on top of an ice pedestal in low-slope glaciers?
