Research Interests

Understanding and quantifying at the molecular scale the geochemical processes between micro-organism (bacteria and fungi), fluids and rocks and their effects on global biogeochemical cycles. Experimental techniques applied includes Focus Ion Beam (FIB), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM, STEM, EDX, SAED), synchrotron-based techniques (STXM, µ-FTIR), Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS and NanoSIMS).

Fungi on the rocks! Mineral weathering processes at the nanometer scale in soils

fungi

Hypha of Paxillus involutus colonizing the surface of biotite (a K-rich phyllosilicate)

This project was centered on the dissolution mechanisms, quantification and the development of rate law for ectomycorrhizal weathering at the interface of silicate minerals in soils.

Bacteria and iron colloids

bacteria

Nanoparticles of hematite adsorbed at the surface of a Shewanella putrefaciens cell.

This work focused on the kinetic controls of microbial Fe(III) oxyhydroxide reduction. The goal was to establish a quantitative relationship between the bioavailability of Fe(III) oxy-hydroxides and their mineralogical, physical and chemical properties.

Iron in atmospheric dust and seawater

Dust

The atmospheric dusts deposited on the open ocean are a major source of iron - a limiting element for phytoplankton growth. This collaborative work aimed to quantify the solubility of iron in atmospheric dust and identify any mineralogical changes during atmospheric transport.
