FlowTrans ITN Experienced Researcher
School of Geographical and Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow, UK
The focus of the FlowTrans research at Glasgow is permeability structuring during dolomite replacement reactions and the formation of lead-zinc deposits.
I will focus on understanding the nature, origin and migration pathway of fluids that migrated and precipitated as precious ore mineralization in stylolites as observed in granitic rocks and compressive context.
During my education and PhD thesis at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France, I specialise in analysing fluid-rock interactions during deformation from chemical, structural, and mechanical points of view. My PhD thesis especially focused on decipher the evolution of the temperature, pressure and the chemistry of fluids moving through a diffuse fracture network formed in relation with the development of folds and foreland basin.
This interdisciplinary study bridged the fields of field geology, structural and microstructural analysis, fracture mechanics, and paleofluid geochemistry, requiring a multiscale analysis of fracture geometry and fluid chemistry from the vein cements to foreland basin (case study: the BigHorn Basin, Wy, USA).
I developed and applied a novel structural sensibility to fluid-rock interactions that I will apply to the research subject of the drain/barrier capability of stylolites and fracture networks. My postdoctoral fellowship will namely focus on understand the nature, origin and migration pathway of fluids that migrated and precipitated as precious ore mineralization in stylolites as observed in granitic rocks and compressive context.
