Research interests

I combine ice-proximal sedimentological, bathymetric, and sediment echography/reflection seismic data from formerly glaciated high-latitude continental shelves in order to perform detailed ice-sheet and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, and to refine knowledge about basal processes at ice-bed interfaces
