Ph.D. University of Liege, Belgium, 2005, Sedimentology of lake systems and Paleoclimatology
M.Sc. University of Liege, Belgium, 2002, Geology

Research Interests

- Multiproxy sedimentary record of climate change and tectonics (lakes and continental margins)
- Paleoclimatology of southern South America
- Inorganic geochemistry, bulk organic geochemistry, grain-size, mineralogy, physical properties of sediments

Personal Statement

My research interests focus on the sedimentary record of climate variability and the associated environmental changes, based on a variety of sedimentological and geochemical proxies. I am especially interested in generating high-resolution paleoclimate and paleoenvironmental records from the mid- and high-latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere, since this part of the world has been relatively understudied but plays an important role in our understanding of Earth's climate variability.
