    Research topic(s)

  • I am a terrestrial and planetary volcanologist. The originality of my research consists in the coupling between sophisticated fluid dynamics models with spatial observations and data analysis. Lately I have been interested in the filtering role planetary crusts exert on the ascent, storage and eruption of magmas. To that aim, I have developed models and tools to look for cryomagma and solidified magma reservoirs in planetary ice shells and crusts. I am also interested in the early processes of terrestrial crust formation and evolution. I am currently studying the effects of impact cratering on magma ascent and magma reservoir formation.
