Research topics

I am an oceanographer whose research focuses on phytoplankton ecophysiology, as well as ocean optics and remote sensing. Their main objective is to understand the interaction between phytoplankton and their environment. So I work at sea and in the laboratory, using numerical models. Finally, in addition to these passions, I am more and more interested in limnology.
