I am gay and I am a climatologist.//

I am a CNRS researcher at the Biogéosciences laboratory (UMR 6282 CNRS, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté University, Dijon, France). I am working on climatology, especially on atmospheric circulation patterns and their regional and local impacts. Other interests: Vegetation phenology (photo monitoring project). Comparative climatology of planets (atmospheric circulation, weather, etc…), as a member of the Astronomical Society of Burgundy (SAB). Research on the knowledge of meteorology and climatology in the ancient world, with a comparison between the documentary sources in the Mediterranean, Indian and Chinese worlds.
