2014-2015

Post-doc as non-permanent faculty (research and teaching Assistant-ATER-):

-          Sep 2014-Jun 2015 (10 months): University Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne, France. (40% to teaching, 40% to research, 20% administrative activities).

-          Fab-July 2014 (6 months): University of Franche-Comté, France. (30% to teaching, 50% to research, 20% administrative).

Research activity:

- At the University Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne, my research focuses on the characterization of deformation mechanisms and hydration of the lithospheric mantle beneath the Kaapvaal craton. Exploiting fabrics, water measurements, and geochemistry, in collaboration with J. Bascou and B. Moine. We attend to explain the variation of the microstructures observed in Kimberley mantle xenoliths. The crystallographic preferred orientation (CPO) on olivine, pyroxenes, and garnet in 8 mylonites has been measured using the SEM-EBSD facility in Geosciences Montpellier. FTIR spectrometry analyses were performed at Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans, Clermont-Ferrand (France), water content measurements have been performed during Theo Mourier L3 research training (undergraduate student L3, 3 weak research training) supervising: F. Kourim, N. Bolfan-Casanova, and B.Moine.

- Similarly, the Edggeri (Hoggar) mantle xenoliths microstructure are investigated combining fabrics and geochemistry studies and in collaboration with J. Bascou (Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans Saint-Etienne) and O. Alard, J.-L. Bodinier and A. Vauchez (Geosciences Montpellier). The aim of this collaborative project is to characterize the structure, composition, and evolution of the continental lithospheric mantle, and asthenosphere-lithosphere interactions beneath the Edggeri district (Hoggar), which is the subject of large scientific debates about Mantle plume.

- During my research stays at the University of Franche-Comté, I finalized my publications about the characterization of the lithospheric mantle of the Hoggar swell and its evolution through time.
