Je suis Ingénieur en géochimie marine, responsable de la plateforme analytique de l'unité (administration, gestion, analyses). je travaille principalement i) sur la caractérisation de la matière organique et inorganique (métaux) dans les différents compartiments du continuum continent-océan, et  ii)  sur l'impact des apports atmosphériques et des fleuves dans les transferts d'éléments et de matière à l'océan.
