Ongoing research on natural phenomena with a multidisciplinary team from Haskoli Islands University of Iceland whose approaches focus on glaciology, volcanology and their measurement tools ; ! eld forecasting, Data and Sensing Instrumentation.  Phenomena Studies (2022), made in the context of the  ADP at Cité Internationale des Arts, was born out of a trip to Iceland to work with a glaciology research group from Haskoli Islands University. 

The research concerned the projection of  the evolution of glaciers and the rise in water levels following different scenarios. At that particular moment, Fagradalsfjall — the volcano — was showing surprising levels of activity, producing carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide and halide gase. The artist explains, "I followed the eruption at Medelir with the volcanologists from the first manipulative movements in the field until the last tremor breath ; sampling lava in the field, taking lava in the field, taking measurements, instrumentation, captation, lidar, spectral measurement, geodesy, etc. We went daily to study the evolution of the eruption activity with all kind of manipulation on the field. We worked with the Lidar instrument studying the reflectivity of the matter and collecting data to build a 3D modelisation of the eruption.
