About

My main interest is the volcanism and the geology of the Solar System. I'm currently studying the geochemistry of the Martian volcanoes and its analogy to the volcanoes of the Earth. 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.
