Area of expertise

Current themes :
My aim as a paleoecologist specialized in pollen study is to investigate trajectory and heritage from past vegetation dynamics. I work in various areas across the Mediterranean and Eurasia, with a special attention on cold or mountain ecosystems from desert steppes to boreal forest. This work includes in a teamwork effort to stress out long term ecology, spatial/temporal distribution of climate mechanisms and socio-cultural impacts on environments.
