I am presently working on tectonic interpretation in the Geneva Basin. The objective of my research is to integrate existing surface and subsurface data between the Jura fold-and-thrust belt and the Geneva area and produce a tectonically and kinematically viable model. The main focus is on processing and interpreting the available seismic and well data in terms of tectonics, but also including lateral facies changes, to developed a 3D model of the subsurface in the larger Geneva area that will be used as a prospective tool for geothermal projects. A special focus is on faults and thrust in the frame of a detached foreland. This work is done in collaboration with the Service industriels de Genève (SIG), Geneva GeoEnergy (GGE), and the Department of Geosciences of the UNIFR.
