This PhD project was on recent uplift and tectonics of the Aegean using multi-disciplinary approaches (geomorphology, geological mapping, remote sensing, datations with paleontology and cosmogenic nuclides, mechanical modeling, etc…). One very important aspect was the description and morphometrics of the uplifted marine terraces on the shore of the Corinth rift and on the Aegean islands, using high resolution topography. From that, he has been able to make a quantitative description of the terrace flights with an unprecedented precision, which he then coupled with landscape evolution modeling and eustatic sea-level variations driven by climatic cycles.
