Steve PEUBLE

  • Responsibilities and Duties

    Geologist specialized in mineral chemistry
    Head of the “Spectroscopy and Chemical Analysis” plateau
    Open and available for all scientific and industrial collaboration

  • Skills

    Experimental study of solid-fluid interactions at HP-HT (up to 1 GPa and 400°C):
    – reactive percolation benches
    – batch reactors (two- and three-phase), continuous flow reactors
    – diamond anvil cells

    Characterization of materials (solid, liquid and gaseous):
    – spectroscopy (ICP-MS and -AES, Raman, IR), chromatography (µGC, GC-MS, Ionic, HPLC)
    – electron microscopy (imaging, EDS, EBSD, FIB)
    – X-ray diffraction (laboratory, synchrotron)

    Geochemical modelling:
    – PhreeqC, JCHESS, EQ3/6, Arxim

  • Research Topics

    My research aims to better understand the thermo-hydro-geochemical mechanisms of fluid-solid interactions.
    They are applied to different fields of Earth Sciences such as mineral sequestration of CO2, hydrogen production and the remediation of polluted sites and soils.

  • Teaching Areas

    Geology, geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, cartography

    Teaching in:
    – Licence and Master’s degree in “Earth Sciences and Environment” at the Universities of Montpellier and Lyon
    – Specialized Master’s degree in “Polluted Sites and Soils” at Mines Saint-Etienne
