My activity

Research: My research is oriented on palynology, the study of the pollen grain which is a proxy of the vegetation, and to the Mediterranean and Eurasian regions. Pollen analyses, integrated in a multi-proxy approach, help me to decipher climate mechanisms and human impact on the landscape.

My expertise is centred on Mediterranean to Caucasus region, with numerous collaboration (many from archeological/geology domain) and several doctorate supervisions.

This field extends eastward, on steppes from Eurasia in the frame of international scientific collaboration, like in Uzbekistan, and of the ANR project STEPABILITY (440k€, 2023-2026).

The study of boreal forests in Russia/Canada account for ecological perturbations in a paleoecological view. This project is part of the French-Canadian LRI “Forêts Froides”.
