Function: Study Engineer
Participation in ClerVolc program N°: 7
Main Research Unit: LMV
I am a ClerVolc post-doctoral fellow working at Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans, Blaise Pascal University, Clermont Ferrand with Raphaël Paris and Karim Kelfoun. My main interest is to study propagation of tsunamis generated by submarine volcanic explosions using numerical methods implemented in COMCOT modeling package. My PhD studies were done at the Laboratoire de Geologie de Lyon, Ecole Normal Superieur (ENS) de Lyon, France, under supervision of Stephane Labrosse and Nicolas Coltice and in collaboration with Paul Tackley and Peter Råback. Using numerical and analytical methods I have been focusing to constrain the thermal and compositional evolution of the early Earth. Research interests: Physics of the Earth and planets, Structure and dynamics of the Earths interior, Earths thermal history, early evolution of the Earth and planets, chemical/thermal equilibration, geophysical fluid dynamics, solid-liquid interactions, convection coupled with melting and solidification, tsunami generation and propagation, volcanic explosion, volcano hazard
