Welcome to our homepage! Our research activities cover a broad spectrum of clastic and carbonate marine sedimentology, where we focus on the subjects "siliciclastic shelf systems" and "ocean and climate". In addition, our work is focused on the study of coccolithophores, including work on ecology, morphometry and biometry, as well as their application for different paleoceanographic studies and paleoenvironmental reconstructions.
