In the Rennes University, I have been in charge of the construction and the functioning (2004-2015) of a master devoted to environmental sciences. This master is tightly related to the Rennes research Observatory. It presents pluridisciplinary skills (earth-, soil-sciences, ecology, agronomy, hydrology) and groups about 20-30 students annualy.

My lectures are in the field of chemical and isotopic hydrology, biogeochemical cycles in master diploma (50 hrs). I also give lectures (60 hrs) in earth and climate functioning and environmental sciences for the students during their first years in the university.

From 2008, I am in charge of the development of the relationships between our master and industrial network. Students are prepared to their profesional life and we develop integration of professionals in our cursus.
