I have a wide geophysical background from both research and consulting. I am currently a researcher at the UBO (University in Brest, France). I worked for the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) in Oslo for 10 years and was Associate Professor at the University of Oslo in Norway. I was a researcher at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) in France for 10 years after obtaining a PhD in 2000 at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, USA.

My main activities include near surface geophysics methods (ERT, IP, GPR, AEM, seismic) as well as seismology.
I have recently acquired different sets of near surface geophysical data on a site with cultural heritage, around a middle-age church in Brittany. I am starting to supervise a Master student on this topic and I would like to acquire some tips and make new connection in this research area.
