Led by the French National Research Agency (ANR) and the CNRS, this call is aimed at researchers who do not live in France and who wish to develop, in France and in collaboration with French partners, high-level research projects to tackle climate and global change.

Among the 7 winners in the “Earth System” theme, Louis A. Derry, a professor at Cornell University, will join the External Envelopes Geochemistry  (G2E) team at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris for 5 years.

Louis Derry is currently a Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University, New York, and Director of the US CZO National Office. A specialist in the study of the critical zone, and a former post-doctoral fellow at the CRPG in Nancy, his research focuses in particular on biogeochemical processes on different timescales, from present-day environments to the evolution of the coupling of biogeochemical cycles over the course of the Earth’s history.

He will be joining Professor Jérôme Gaillardet’s team for a joint project on understanding the critical zone in the face of climate change, and more specifically on the isotopic tracing of flows within catchment areas.
