I am a CNRS research scientist. Most of my research concerns hydrothermal mineral deposits. I study the processes that occur when hot fluids interact with rocks in the crust, alter them, carry and eventually precipitate metals to form a deposit. I use a field-based approach that ranges from mineralogical to µ-scale analysis and fluid inclusion investigations.
Recently, I have been working on green energy resources such as Li, as well as on sustainable metal recovery in active mines and tailings.
