Professor, Dr

Main interest

  • Sedimentary geology of siliciclastic1 shelves.
  • Internal structure and origin of incised valleys and sand ridges on continental shelves (North Sea, English Channel, Celtic Sea)
  • Seismic and sequence stratigraphy and structure of the Palaeogene of the southern North Sea and the Tertiary of Belgium
  • Polygonal faulting in Eocene clays (North Sea)
  • Sedimentary geology of shelf, shelf-edge, slope and foot-of-slope environments
  • long high-latitude margins (Antarctica, polar North Atlantic).
  • Structural and sedimentary geology, seismic stratigraphy and lake-floor morphology of glacial, volcanic and continental rift lakes (Le Bourget, Annecy, Anterne, Geneva, Sanabria, Chilean Lake District, Challa, Naivasha, Malawi, Tanganyika, Rukwa, Baikal, Teletskoye, Issyk-Kul, Khubsugul,...).
  • Marine geology and geophysics of gas hydrates and methane seeps.
