- Physical processes of cohesive and mixed sediments: erosion, deposition, flocculation, liquefaction and consolidation
- Mud deposit characterization: rheological approaches, biological and chemical processes affecting fine sediment dynamics
- Numerical modeling of cohesive and mixed sediments transport
- Field and lab observations on the behavior of fine sediments in the water column (including benthic boundary layer)
- Fine sediment and mixture behavior on estuaries and tidal flats
- Fine sediment and mixture behavior on the continental shelf and slope
- Fine sediment and mixture behavior on lakes and reservoirs.
