I currently work on the CHIMNEY project, looking at natural microevents that were recorded on the OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometers) during a deployment in the North Sea. The project focuses on the Scanner pockmark that releases a large quantity of methane in the water column to understand the subsurface chimneys structures and the dynamics of fluid flows at the seabed and in the water column.

My previous work focused more on seismic events at volcanoes, particularly in the East African Rift and in Martinique, to understand the interaction between magmatic and tectonic processes.

Research interests

My main research interest is local seismicity in different tectonic contexts: volcanoes, faults, fluids movements, during rifting or subduction, etc. This involves working on seismic location methods, waveforms analysis, source mechanisms, magnitude calculation, etc.
