About

My main interests are the volcanology of Io and Mars but I'm also interested in the volcanism and the geology of the other bodies of the Solar System. I'm currently studying the origin of the Martian dichotomy and its links to the volcanoes of Mars. I named the following volcanoes on Mars, names then approved by the Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature: Aonia Mons, Aonia Tholus, Electris Mons, Eridania Mons, Sirenum Mons, Sirenum Tholus.
