Biography

I am a geologist by training. I am currently researching the physical fluid dynamics of sediments suspension, interplanetary sedimentology (Mars, Venus, Titan), tectonics and sedimentation on Earth, specifically of the Gulf of Corinth and the Rio Grande rift and, finally, the interactions between what I call 'Cybertectonic Earth' and the state of Gaia.
