  • Thèmes de Recherche :

    I am an isotope geochemist interested in high and low temperature geochemistry. My main research interest is the development and use of non-traditional stable isotope systems to study redox reactions in natural systems. The two main research areas that I currently work on are the oxygenation and variations in the redox conditions in past Oceans and the processes responsible for the differentitaion of the Earth such as core formation.

    I have worked on many different geological and environmental materials from seawater to iron meteorites and lunar basalts. More recently, I have been working in “experimental isotope geochemistry”. The aim of this research is to study the isotopic fractionation for non-traditional stable isotopes during laboratory experiments. The tools I have currently developed are stable Cr and stable Ce isotopes. For both Cr and Ce isotope measurements, I use the “double spike” method to correct the fractionation induced by chemical separation and isotopic measurements. I analyse most of my samples using a Thermo Ionisation Mass Spectrometer.
