Meet the Science Party! Victoire Lucas
Hi, my name is Victoire, I’m French and I am a graduate student in Geosciences.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I have done my master’s degree at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale, in Brest, where I specialized in sedimentary geochemistry.
WHAT IS YOUR AREA OF RESEARCH?
I study the mechanisms of exceptional preservation in Paleozoic sediments and I enjoy it a lot.
WHAT IS A FIRST TIME FOR YOU ON THIS EXPEDITION?
This expedition is my very first time at sea and I am very excited about discovering the life on board; how daily life is organized and how everyone, with different skills, can participate in the advancement of the mission.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT MARINE SCIENCE?
I find the sea so fascinating because it will always remain mysterious for the human kind. It is often said that we know the surface of the moon better than the bottom of the oceans!
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF
Aside from geology, I love reading, practicing rugby and sewing.
