I am a palynologist and I study interactions between societies and environment. I am a specialist of mountainous, boreal, subarctic and arctic areas. I am currently coordinator of the InterArctic project (A millennium of interaction between societies and environments in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions – Canada and Greenland) funded by the French National Agency. This project involved 45 participants from 11 French laboratories and 10 foreign ones in Canada, Scotland and Greenland. I am also involved in research projects funded by the French Polar Institute (ADACLIM and ENCHAINEC) and I am part on an International Research Project between France and Russia (NORth) dealing with the neolithization of the north-western Russian plain.
