Laboratory:

MarGinS Lab - Marine Geology and Sedimentology Laboratory

Current Research:

My research activity is dedicated to the study of continental margins, and aims to:

- understand the processes controlling sediment transport, partitioning, accumulation and remobilization, in a source to sink perspective;

- decipher the signature of sea level, climate and tectonics from the sedimentary record;

- investigate the effects of extreme events on margin evolution;

- quantify the response, and feedback, of modern depositional systems to climate change.

My current study areas include offshore East and West Africa, UK Atlantic margin, Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea, offshore Brazil, and Australia.
