Research projects

I have participated into 38 research projects of which 21 since 2010 :

  • 9 as principal or co-principal investigator,
  • 7 as leader of Work Package (WP).

The projects I am currently involved in and the main projects I have been involved in the last 7 years are shown below.

Note that we are currently looking for a 2-year postdoc researcher to work in the LITOSMED project with IMBE and LCE. You can find more information here
