I call myself a geologist and a geochemist. I work at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (near Paris, in France), where I hold a permanent research position.
In my early academic life, I studied recent crustal deformation recorded by the landscapes of tectonically active regions like the Lebanese restraining bend or the Tien Shan fold-and-thrust belts (NW China).
Today I'm mostly involved in measuring past temperatures recorded by carbonates in various continental or oceanic settings, using “clumped isotopes”, a new type of geochemical measurement. Some of my work deals with deciphering the paleo-environmental signal recorded in carbonate precipitates such as speleothems.
