Research Overview:

Since my licence back in France I have been interested in the deglaciation pattern of a major ice sheet that covered the European continent some 20 000 years ago. It was during my maîtrise and then during my PhD that I acquired the tools necessary to build direct deglaciation chronologies that are essential for our understanding of the ice-climate interaction. Since then I have broadened my geographical and field interests. My current research takes me to places such as Skye, Greenland, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, Russia, and Spain where I continue to build chronologies of ice retreat to understand the possible mechanisms responsible for these retreats. Applications of surface exposure dating are diverse and I am developing research in paleolake shoreline reconstructions as well as erosion rate quantification at the watershed scale.
