Curriculum Vitae

Experimental device in natural seawater for toxicity monitoring of metallic elements in marine organisms

Research topics

Physico-chemical  research on marine water quality :

● Assessment of metal toxicity on marine organisms.

Applications : biomonitoring of coastal water quality ; impact of sacrificial anodes in harbor environment.

In-situ approach (biomonitoring by caging); in-vivo approach (biotests with mollusks and sponges) and in-vitro approach (ecotoxicological tests).

● Other : physico-chemical characterization of marine biofilm with Corrodys laboratory (
