Activités de Recherche:     
I have a background (MSc) in physics and a PhD in oceanography. My work has been broadly concerned with the individual based (Lagrangian) modelling of phytoplankton dispersion in the ocean (in response to turbulent mixing) and the effect of the varying underwater light environment on phytoplankton physiology and primary production, including possible behavioural responses (motility). I am a current member of the scientific subcommittee of the IOC funded GEOHAB consortium (
Projets de Recherche:
I am currently working on the SeaQUEST project which deals with the 3D numerical biogeochemical simulation of the Gulf of Lions in the Western Mediterranean.
