I am a researcher and lecturer at IPGP-Géosciences Réunion, France. Most of my research focuses on the interactions between river network, tectonics, volcanic activity, detrital sedimentation, and climate that shape the relief in active settings.
I use a multidisciplinary approach that combines numerical modelling, field studies, geomorphology, tectonics, geochronology and thermochronology, and sedimentology. I am currently working on topics such as the geodynamical and landscape evolution of the southeastern Tibetan plateau and the development of drainage network on volcanic terranes. Specifically, I focus on landscape dissection by rivers on hotspot volcanoes and the role of extreme precipitation events on fluvial incision.
I am also interested in diffusion processes of noble gas (Ne, He) in minerals. Application of these systems range from planetary science to terrestrial settings, where low-temperature thermochronometry has been applied bedrock then to detrital minerals, thus opening new perspectives in reconstructing stages of mountain growth and erosion processes at the scale of a drainage basin. Noble gases hold enormous potential in further unravelling the links between tectonics, relief, and erosion.
