Christophe Thomazo

Christophe Thomazo studied geology and biology at the University of Paris 7 and completed his PhD between 2005 and 2008 at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris. During his PhD he reported the results of an integrated stable isotope (carbon, oxygen, sulphur, and nitrogen) study of the Mesoarchean Tumbiana Formation and of the Paleoarchean North Pole Group (Dresser Formation; Western Australia) in order to put further insights on life evolution through carbon, sulphur, and nitrogen anabolism and catabolism pathways. He worked as a post doc associate researcher between 2009 and 2010 in the laboratory of Prof. Harald Strauß in the Institute of Geology and Palaeontology at the University of Muenster (Germany), where he explored the Precambrian evolution, in particular using multiple sulfur isotope (so called Mass Indepent Fractionation) to trace the oxygenation of the young earth. In 2010 he was appointed Associate Professor (Maître de conférences) in the Biogéosciences Laboratory (CNRS) of the University of Burgundy (Dijon, France).
