Domaines de recherches / Research Interest

GENERAL :
Early diagenesis of sediments in environments ranging from salt marshes to the deep basins in the Arctic Ocean. My research focuses on redox chemistry but is relevant to any element whose distribution in sediments is in some way related to the carbon cycle. They include major elements such as Fe and Mn, nutrient elements such as N, P, and Si, and trace elements such as Cd, Mo, U, and Re. The interactions between living organisms (bacteria, animals and plants) and sediments receive special attention.

PROJECTS :
Hypoxia in the St. Lawrence Estuary.
Recent changes in sediment chemistry in the deep Arctic Ocean basins as a result of global warming.
Application of a solid state voltammetric microelectrode to measure redox species directly in sediment porewater.
The cycle of lead in the root zone of salt marsh sediments.
The coupled geochemistry of Mn, N and I in sediments.
Geochemistry of Mo, Cd, U and Re in view of their use as paleo redox-tracers.
Redox chemistry in Lake Matano, Indonesia.
