Welcome Pierre!

Pierre Cadeau

I’m happy to welcome Pierre Cadeau, Postdoctoral Fellow, to the NIRVANA Labs! Pierre plans to investigate how non-traditional stable isotope systems, such as cadmium and nickel, can be used to trace Earth’s biogeochemical evolution. His project is supported by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowship and is being conducted in collaboration with Oliver Rouxel (Ifremer).…
