My research aims at understanding all processes and mechanisms associated with fluid-rock interactions from deep (lower crust) to superficial rock samples (diagenetic conditions). I developed an approach applicable to different types of fluid-mediated rock transformations that relies on compositional maps and more significantly, applicable at various scales.
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in 2006 from the University of Poitiers and completed my master’s degree at the University of Rennes in France. My master’s thesis was on the metamorphic and the structural evolution of the Ile de Groix, France. Then I moved to Münster in Germany to start my doctorate as an early researcher within the Marie Curie Initial Training Network FlowTrans. I defended my PhD in 2016 titled “Relationship between density, volume and mass transfer through a fluid phase during hydration reactions in the Bergen Arcs, Norway”. I worked on the partially hydrated granulite-facies rock into eclogite and amphibolite-facies rock using physical and chemical data, and thermodynamic modelling approach.
From 2018 to 2021, I was a research and teaching associate at the Laboratory of Complex Fluids and their Reservoirs, University of Pau & Adour, France. My focus was on (de-)dolomitization processes and associated ore deposits using natural and experimental approaches.
Since 2024, I am part of the CET team working on the Kupferchiefer deposit in Poland. In this role, I aim to determine (i) the fluid’s chemical composition responsible for the Cu-deposit, (ii) its redox and pH conditions, and (iii) more importantly, whether the mineralization is associated with a single or multiple fluid events.
