I am a Researcher in Paleoclimate and Polar Meteorology. My main focus is to use water isotopes as a tracer of various processes in the hydrological cycle, with two applications: how to interpret the isotopic signal in ice core records, and what can we learn from this additional tracer for the atmospheric boundary layer dynamics and its interactions with the firn.

I’m very committed to outreach, both popularising science to general public, but also within the scientific community.

Using my Physics background, I am including a physics point of view on water isotope geochemistry field and open new perspectives in the representation of the processes affecting isotopes.
