    Research topic(s)

  • Study of the deformation from crystal to lithospheric scale; relationships between (micro)-structures, deformation and physical anisotropies (seismic and magnetic). Investigated geological “materials” and sites are: cratonic lithosphere (Siberia; East- Antarctica). shear zones (Brazil, Terre Adélie, Bénin, Togo), mantle above the Kerguelen plume (India Ocean), magmatic flows (natural basaltic flows from the center and the south of France) and analogues.
  • Study of the magnetic properties of anthropogenic samples (scoria and slag) and their relationship with heavy metal pollution.
  • Responsible for the rock magnetism instrumentation of the LMV@UJM.
  • Principal Investigator of two scientific projects of the French polar institute (IPEV):
  • Project ARLITA (Architecture la lithosphère de Terre Adélie), link:
  • Project LISISKER (Etude des structures de la lithosphère et de la sismicité de Kerguelen), link :
