Research areas

My research activities focus on the study of carbon and nitrogen transfers and transformations in biogeosystems and the link with global change. This research is structured around two axes:

– Quantification of greenhouse gas fluxes: CO2 and N2O emissions in soil and sediment, soil respiration.

– Characterisation and transformation of organic matter: the study of organic carbon dynamics in soil/sediment and in solution, related to carbon and nitrogen biogeochemical cycles.

For this research, I use and develop significant specific skills in stable isotope techniques (13C, 15N), molecular markers

Keywords: soil, isotopic geochemistry, soil respiration, 15N, 13C, greenhouse gas, carbon cycles, organic matter, DOC, WEOC.

Analytical techniques

Stable isotopic geochemistry, mass spectrometry δ15N, δ13C, isotopic dilution, isotopic analyses of gaseous and solid forms (minerals and organics).

Gas chromatography (CO2, CH4, N2O), elemental analyses C and N, spectrophotometry, atmospheric CO2 measurements, dissolved organic carbon (WEOC)

Molecular analysis, Py-GC-MS, EGA

Field measurements, soil respiration, NEE

Teaching experience

Université de Bourgogne, Dijon (France), in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department (ETEC), around 250 hours/year from the 1st to the 5th year.

Supervisor of postgraduate labwork.
