Skills

Quantitative Geomorphology  : Analyze of landscapes on Earth and Mars with remote sensing and field studies to characterize landforms and determine surface processes

Field experiences  :

  • Periglacial environments : geomorphological study of periglacial landforms in Central Yakutia (Sakha Republic, Russia) and in the Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands (Canada).
  • Sedimentary basins : Geological mapping to reconstruct geological history of the Alps and Pyrenees mountain range
  • Volcanic regions : Geological mapping and laboratory analyses of rock samples to study the chemistry and age of magmatic rocks in the Auvergne and Cantal volcanoes
  • Geophysical survey : GPR, Electromagnetism, Gravimetry, Magnetic field, Refraction seismic, Electrical Resistivity Tomography to image the subsurface

Remote-Sensing  :

  • Photo-interpretation & georeferencing with ArcGIS, ErMapper (GIS software)
  • Planetary image processing with USGS-Isis software

Leadership  :

  • Ph. D. student representatives ; Undergraduate supervisions (2008 ; 2009)
  • Organization member of the International Year of Planet Earth (UNESCO’s headquarters, Paris, 2008)

Project Manager  :

  • Scientific project proposal every year (Plan National de Planétologie)
  • Short-film direction “Mars Mission Ice- Core” about Mars Exploration during “Festival Les chercheurs font leur cinema” in 2009 (Awarded) : http://mmc.lmd.jussieu.fr/

Scientific outreach activities  :

  • Geological organizer for young disabled people (every year)
  • Planetary Sciences organizer during Official public event “Day of Sciences” (every year)

Languages  : English (fluent), Spanish (to be reactivated), Polish (basic), Russian (basic)
