Introduction
I currently works at the Department of Environment and Agronomy at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research. I work on a project aiming to evaluate pesticides residues in soils and the need to establish a long-term monitoring of those substances at a national scale.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are persistent organic pollutants produced by anthropogenic activities that contaminate all environmental spheres, including soils. This study focused on PAHs measured in 2154 soils in France, covering the entire territory based on a regular sampling grid. The quantified concentrations in the Σ15 PAHs ranged...

Background, aim, and scope The release of trace elements (TE) associated with the development of human activities has accelerated since the nineteenth century, leading to the pollution of river systems. Despite a drastic reduction in industrial inputs in northern Europe, diffuse pollution originating from urban areas still prevents achieving the g...
Article
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) have been released by human activities during more than a century, contaminating the entire atmosphere – soil – river continuum. Due to their ubiquity in the environment and their potential severe biological impacts, PAH became priority pollutants and were targeted by environmental public agencies. To better m...
Article
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) produced by numerous anthropogenic activities are ubiquitous in the environment and have become a priority concern due to their potential severe biological impacts. A better understanding of PAH transfer at the catchment scale is therefore necessary to improve the management of PAH contaminants and protect ri...
Article
Full-text available
The excessive supply of contaminants from urban areas to rivers during the last centuries has led to deleterious impacts on aquatic ecosystems. The sources, the behavior, and the dynamics of these contaminants must be better understood in order to reduce this excessive anthropogenic pollution. Accordingly, the current research investigated the part...

Project
The goal of this project is to get an overview of pesticides residues contamination of selected soils and identify the factors influencing those residues (soil characteristics, land use...). The results of this preliminary assessment will then allow to evaluate the need of a long-term monitoring of those substances at a national scale.
Project
The aim of my phD projet is to study in a small watershed, presenting an increasing urban pressure from up to downstream, the dynamics of Trace Elements and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. Contaminants levels in both dissolved and particulate compartement were measured at several campaigns during the year 2016 to assess river pollution. Identification of contamination sources by using geochemistry tools such as lead isotopic composition or PAH ratios complemented by radionuclides tracing particles sources and transfer will deepen the global understanding of contaminant behaviour. Understanding the entire systemis the key to an effective river and watershed management.
