Scientific interests:

- Oceanic Time series 
- Downward particle flux
- U series isotopes as tracers in marine environment (234Th, 230Th, 232Th, 231Pa, 210Pb)
- Organic and inorganic geochemistry in marine sediments (Nd and Sr isotopes)

Observation Projects:

- MOOSE: Mediterranean Ocean Observing System on Environment (INSU project)

- EuroSITES (FP7, 2008-2011): Collaborative project for an integrated European network of 9 deep-ocean (>1000m) observatories

- ESONET NoE: European Seas Observatory Network - Network of Excellence

- OceanSITES: a worldwide system of long-term, deepwater reference stations measuring dozens of variables and monitoring the full depth of the ocean from air-sea interactions down to 5,000 meters.

Research projects:

- HYMEX, MerMEX and CHARMEX (CNRS-INSU Mediterranean projects)

- GEOTRACES: International study of the global marine biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes
