Since January 2016, I am a Visiting Scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, on leave from my Associate Professor position
at Blaise Pascal University (Clermont-Ferrand, France). My research focuses mostly on understanding planetary formation, the origin
of magmatism and the formation of magmatic rocks on Earth and the terrestrial planets through experimental and analytical studies.
I also have strong interests in mineralogy, planetary geology, and field-based magmatic petrology.

You can find more about my research projects on the research page, or look at a list of my publications and at my CV.

This web page also contains a section with field pictures of magmatic processes, and some vacation pictures.
