As part of my thesis, I try to reconstruct the history of fire, vegetation and humans in the Mediterranean region during the Holocene (11000 years). For this, I study charcoals and pollens deposited in lacustrine sediments. I also use modelisation to understand the underlying factors of these events and better interpret them.
