MSc Earth Science from Sorbonne Université Paris
I speak 4 languages and I draw nice comic strips
I've worked at the GeoForschungsZentrum in Potsdam and before I've worked as a video game tester in Berlin and Dublin.
University College Dublin
Favourite thing to do in science: Travelling the world
About Me: I'm a person, first of all. I'm a geologist. I'm a very creative scientist and I also like to know how the Earth evolved to be the way it is now.
My Course/Research/Work: I want to know how and why submarine landslides move on the sea floor and so to do that, I get sediment cores from the bottom of the ocean and shoot sound waves down into the earth, and from that I can explain how all of it works.
I want to know how submarine landslides are triggered. And why they are so different. They’re really deep into the ocean, so we scan them with sound waves and get sediment cores from the bottom of the ocean, and I try to make sense out of them by interpreting wiggles on specific computer software and deducing how sediment moves on the sea floor.
My Typical Day: I wake up. I put clothes on. I eat breakfast. Then most days are spent in front of the computer. Then I play video games, eat dinner with my boyfriend, watch a movie, go to bed.
What I'd do with the money: I would probably get equipment to start a YouTube video in which I would invite scientists to talk about their diverse research projects.

What's your favourite food?
What is the most fun thing you've done?
I wrote a 85 pages comic book about me and my friends travelling in space and time.
