My research work involves mapping and sounding subsurface hydrological and geological structures in a planetary arid context using radar imaging and probing techniques. I am mainly interested in two potential applications. The first is to study the potential of low-frequency orbital sounding and ground-penetrating radars for the exploration of possible martian subsurface hydrological features as local water lenses or aquifer systems. My studies include electromagnetic characterization of Martian-like materials, numerical simulations of wave propagation in geo-electrical models, GPR field surveys, and comparative planetology studies.
