I am a geographer by training and have been a CNRS researcher since 2008. My research focuses on questions related to physical geography, human impacts and the spatio-temporal dynamics of coasts over the long term (from the annual to the millennial). My work is organized around three distinct but complementary themes: (i) environmental geography and the geomorphology of ancient ports; (ii) the morphosedimentological response of deltaic systems and valley bottoms to climatic forcing, anthropogenic impacts and relative sea-level changes; and (iii) natural hazards and their environmental implications.
