Background and activities

My research focuses on the geodynamics of rifting: the formation and evolution of rifted margins and lithospheric break-up. I combine seismic reflection interpretation with potential field modeling and onshore analogues knowledge to study the extensional processes in terms of tectonic structures, stratigraphic geometries and magmatic content.


Research interests
- Geodynamics, Tectonics, Structural Geology, Basin Analysis
- Lithospheric extensional deformation processes, Rifted margins architecture and evolution
- Methods: seismic interpretation, structural analysis, potential field modelling
- Site studies: Iberia, Newfoundland, South Atlantic, North-East Atlantic, Mid-Norway, Jan Mayen, North-East Greenland
