I am interested in understanding those physical / geological / biochemical processes which control the source-to-sink transport of solid material (clastic sediment and particulate organic matter) on the Earth surface. More specifically, my research topics include:

  • The quantitative impact of macrobenthos in benthic-pelagic coupling and seafloor material recycling
  • Morphogenesis and morphodynamics of medium- to large-scale sedimentary systems
  • Sedimentation processes from coastal, mid-shelf to deep-sea environments
