- Revision of the age of the final demise of the Urgonian rudistid-platform ecosystem in the Mediterranean Tethys by means of ammonite biostratigraphy.
- Reconsider the chronology of events and the causative mechanisms for the demise of the Urgonian Mediterranean platforms.
- Glacio-eustasy may have triggered the widespread emersive demise of the Mediterranean Urgonian rudistid platforms in the latest Barremian.
Very proud to be officially awarded the 2018 André Prud’homme Prize for my PhD thesis entitled ‘Numerical modeling for increased understanding of Ordovician climate’ !
- We use a general circulation model to simulate Cretaceous environmental conditions.
- We identify oceanic regions favorable to the development of platform carbonates.
- The ecological niche model performs well in the Aptian.
- It also captures the increase in platform carbonates area during the Cretaceous.
- Sea-level rise is identified as a major factor responsible for this increase.

- The southern European Shelf remained oxygenated during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event.
- Ocean dynamics, notably the Tethyan clockwise gyre, largely controlled bottom water oxygen concentrations on the European Shelf.
- Organic carbon burial in the European Shelf likely contributed to the termination of the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event.
