Current Research Interests

Pascal Flament (https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4774-9900) obtained his PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 1985 and his HDR (Authorized to Supervise Research) in 2004. He is Professor since 2016. His main interest is related to the formation and evolution of pollution aerosols. As a chemist, his research expertise is more specifically applied to the tropospheric chemistry of heavy metals such as iron, zinc, cadmium or copper as (isotopic) tracers of sources and processes of atmospheric pollution.

His ongoing projects concern the contribution of pollution derived particles and desert dust to the delivery of soluble Fe to the oceans and more particularly the partitioning between soluble and particulate Fe during tropospheric transport and the related isotope fractionation processes (collaboration with the Free University Brussels, G-Time Laboratory, Prof. Nadine Mattielli – https://gtime.ulb.be/nadine-mattielli/). These activities take place especially within the scope of the Laboratory of Excellence (Labex) CaPPA, financed by the ANR and the new ANR funded Project “FAAR” (Surface complexation: a key phenomenon in Fe Aerosols Atmospheric Reactivity?).

Pascal Flament has a regular referee activity for high ranked journals (Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, Atmospheric Environment, Atmospheric Research, Atmospheric Pollution Research, Chemosphere…). He has co-supervised 13 PhD students and postdoctoral researchers and published 48 referred papers (1478 citations, author h-index: 22; Source: Elsevier© Scopus citation database of peer-reviewed literature, accessed January 8th 2024). As a co-author, he presented 65 oral and poster communications in International Conferences.
