I am a biogeochemical oceanographer dedicated to understanding the links between the blue ocean (temperature, salinity, density, currents) and the green ocean (plankton, organic matter, bacteria, fish), and how these two compartments influence the global Carbon cycle. To this aim, I combine biogeochemical models with observations obtained with satellites, autonomous floats (BGC-Argo) and ship-based in-situ observations to study both the surface of the ocean and its deep layers. My current interests are heading towards understanding the role of droughts and wildfires as sources of aerosols that fertilise ocean phytoplankton. Open to transdisciplinary collaborations with NGOs, scientific communicators and artists.
