About me

My aim is to exploit the information stored in microfossil remains about past environmental conditions. I want to make the best out of micropalaeontology and show that this subject should be at the centre of research investigation, by the development of new indices for paleoenvironmental reconstructions and new technical designed tools dedicated to micropalaeontologists.

I am part of the Climat Team in the CEREGE laboratory (Centre Européen de Recherche et d’Enseignement en Géosciences de l’Environnement, Aix en Provence, France).

Through years, I specialised in micropalaeontology with a focus on how the ecological preferences of marine micro-organisms (planktic and benthic) are related to global climate and environmental changes, on a variety of time scales. My current post-doc is dedicated to the creation of a Neogene to recent radiolarian database and a new automated workflow for the image acquisition, stacking, processing, segmentation, and identification of radiolarian images using convolutional neural networks (CNNs).
