I received my PhD in Earth Sciences in 2006 from Université de Rennes 1 (France) and my Habilitation in Earth Sciences in 2013 from Université Picardie Jules Verne (France). I am now an associate professor of geochemistry and deputy director of the Agroecology and Hydrogeochemistry (AGHYLE) group at Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle, Beauvais (France). My research interests include trace metal fractionation and particularly Rare Earth Elements and cobalt in low-temperature aqueous systems, from rock to water, soil and vegetation (i.e. the Critical Zone). I am also an advocate of Open Access and started being for Open Science. I tweet @olivier_pourret and my ORCID is 0000-0001-6181-6079.
