Research Fields

Geodiversity in Belgium and around: Inventory of Geosites & Methodology

Develop methodology to inventory and assess geodiversity in specific environments (e.g., coastal lowlands, rivers, caves, cemeteries, cliffs …) and  apply mapping techniques for geoconservation (e.g., drone campaigns, LIDAR, geophysical/geochemical). ​

Geodiversity within RBINS geology collections: Inventory & Methodology

Application of new analytical techniques to valorize RBINS geology collection as geodiversity treasures of the subsoil (thin sections, cores, Antarctic meteorites, natural building stones,  etc.).​

Linking Geodiversity and biodiversity

Develop interdisciplinary methodology and application of mapping/monitoring techniques to enhance our knowledge on the interaction between biodiversity and geodiversity, to secure their interlinked preservation on the long-term.​
