Valentin Basch

Valentin got his BSc and MSc degrees from the University of Strasbourg, in France. After a geodynamic and geophysics formation, he studied the processes of formation of the Pass d’Ur tectono-sedimentary breccia, in Val Malenco ophiolites, Swiss. In the frame of the ABYSS project, he will study the interaction between the melt and the intruded rocks, based on field observations, microstructures, major and trace elements analyses in minerals, with a special focus on olivine. The studied objects will mainly be the Erro Tobbio (Ligurian Alps), Monte Maggiore (Corsica), Oman, and Internal and External Liguride ophiolites.
