Biographical details

Claire is a postdoctoral research associate in the EarthByte Group, School of Geosciences. She completed her PhD at the University of Lyon (France) in 2017 titled “Tectonic analyse of the surface of mantle convection models“.

Her research focuses on the relationships between deep dynamics and surface tectonics. Especially to finely characterised the tectonics produced by numerical models.

Research interests

- Interaction between surface processes and mantle dynamics.

- Long term evolution of plates layout

- Interaction between mantle processes and landscape evolution
