I have recently defended my Ph.D. thesis, entitled "Microstructural changes and microbial diversity associated to silicate weathering - Influence on dissolution kinetics from the laboratory to the field". This work was supervised by Dr. Gwenaël Imfeld and Dr. Damien Daval at the University of Strasbourg. I am currently working as post-doctoral researcher on a project funded by BASF Company that aims at deciphering the mechanisms underlying the early dissolution of cement phases.
My main research interest is the reactivity of natural materials, and I have targeted my academic career accordingly: completing four years of training at École Normale Supérieure de Paris to obtain B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Chemistry from Université Pierre et Marie Curie and an M.Sc. in Earth Sciences from Université Paris Diderot.
Mineral weathering across scales.
The first part of my Ph.D. project aimed at determining the kinetic consequences of microstructural changes occuring at the reactive interface in the course of silicate dissolution. I have shown that ...Read More
In the second part of my Ph.D. project, I designed a field experimental setup that enables direct probing of mineral reactivity and associated microbial diversity. The aim was to determine the factors governing ...Read More
