Research field: nautical archaeology and history

His research deals mainly with nautical archaeology and history. He dedicated a book about the load capacity of the Greek and Roman ships (Phortia. Le tonnage des navires de commerce en Méditerranée du VIIIe siècle av. l’ère chrétienne au VIIe siècle de l’ère chrétienne, Rennes, Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2016, 656 p.). His study of the ancient ships is based both on written sources, iconographical evidence and shipwrecks. He is conducting land and underwater excavations and surveys in France (Allonnes, Port-Vendres) and in Israel (Caesarea). He is also heading the PANAV project about nautical heritage.
