Alice Adenis


Cartoonist, Data Scientist and PhD in geophysics. I like drawing and programming. I hope life’s long enough to get good at two things.






Maëlis Arnould


PhD candidate in cotutelle between two nice cities: Lyon and Sydney. I like teaching, travelling and running numerical models of mantle convection in order to understand the links between the dynamics of deep Earth and its surface.






Marie Bocher


PhD in geodynamics from Lyon, I am now Post-doc in Zürich, Switzerland. I study dynamical models of the seismic cycle and develop methods to assimilate observation into these models.

ETHZ Profile





Nicolas Coltice

Professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, and before at University Lyon 1. I teach and do research on the dynamics of the interior of the Earth and planets. I think I can use my job to contribute to help on some social issues, like equal opportunity. I have the chance to work with Alice, Mélanie, Claire, Marie, Maëlis and Martina, and discover what it is to be a feminine team in geosciences. I am grateful to have the support of the European Research Council for what we’ve done together.




Mélanie Gérault


Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Lyon 1 and future postdoctoral researcher at MIT. In my work, I try to understand the geologic forces that shape the beautiful Earth. I am also interested in all forms of resistance against discrimination, prejudice and oppression toward living beings.





Claire Mallard


I am postdoctoral researcher at the University of Sydney. I received my geodynamics doctorate from the University of Lyon in August 2016. I studied plate tectonics in mantle convection models.






Martina Ulvrova

Former postdoctoral fellow at University Lyon 1. My research topics cover deep time long term thermal evolution of the Earth, volcanic paleo-tsunamis and dynamics of plate boundaries including subduction and rift zones. I am a world traveler and a trail runner.
