My research is about interplay between organic matter in its various forms (from dissolved to coarse forms such as large wood) and water flow. This implies following subtopics:

  • Effect of instream accumulations of large wood on dynamic of water flow and deposition of sediments;
  • Floating organic material in freshwaters and impact of river fragmentation on its functions and natural cycle;
  • Effect of first flush events on leaching of organic matter and nutrients in intermittent rivers (cooperation with the “1000 Intermittent rivers project” (http://1000_intermittent_rivers_project.irstea.fr/);
  • Modeling nutrient load in catchments with intermittent rivers
