Research Interests

I am a research associate working with the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). Over the next months I will be involved in the acquisition and interpretation of petrophysical data with the European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD).

After a BSc in environmental engineering and an MSc in petroleum geology in France, I obtained a PhD at the Royal Holloway University of London. My doctoral research focused on Neoproterozoic strata from Namibia and Zambia, I have been looking at the macro and microfacies of microbial carbonates.
