Working with datasets with millions of data, I developed a specific tool to manage varied raw data sources and aggregate them into an unified framework. Such database has then be exploited with multiple numerical, statistical and probabilistic approaches. Modeling and signal processing were performed as well. I mainly coded in Python (22,000 lines) and Matlab (7,000 lines) but I have a basic knowledge of R, HTML and PHP languages.
Good science equals good data. In order to study glacial erosion, I measured hydro-sedimentary parameters in the vicity of a glacier. In this kind of challenging environment, I participated in the installation of 3 hydro-sedimentary monitoring stations. Data acquired by these data-loggers were transmitted back to the lab and allowed checking their good functioning on a day-to-day basis. Some of these stations have been maintened for 5 years.
Estimating erosion fluxes requires to determine sediment sources and transfer times. During my thesis, I deciphered the origin of the fine-grained glacial sediment by measuring cosmogenic nuclide concentrations. My work also showed that coarse particle transport mechanisms can be investigated using radio-frequency identified (RFID) pebbles. Such tracers have been monitored using mobile and static antennas in difficult field conditions.
