Jean-Jacques is a geomorphologist at the University of Savoie (France) and Director of the research laboratory EDYTEM (Environment, Dynamic and Mountain Areas). His role in Connecting Country is to:
- Study the physical contexts of sites;
- Investigate the spatial organisation of site use through geomorphological evidence;
- Analyse how sites have been modified by past human actions;
- Create 3-D laser models of studied sites.
Jean-Jacques’s work rests on an innovative crossing of geomorphological and archaeological data to better understand site formation processes. His research over the last 10 years has primarily involved the development of this crossing of geomorphology (the study of the physical features of the Earth’s surface) integrated into archaeological and environmental problems.
