Christophe Tournassat is a Professor at the University of Orléans, France, where he leads the group working on “Continental Biogeosystems” at the Institut des Sciences de la Terre d’Orléans (ISTO). He is also currently a Visiting Faculty in the Energy Geosciences Division, Earth and Environmental Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, USA. Christophe Tournassat holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Earth Sciences from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France, a Ph.D. in Environmental Geochemistry from the University of Grenoble, France, and an "Habilitation à diriger des recherches" in Geology from the University of Nantes, France. His scientific interest covers a range of topics from thermodynamics and kinetics of low temperature water/solutes/rock interactions to multi-scale numerical modeling of retention and transfer processes in geological media. He co-develops, with Carl Steefel, the code CrunchClay, which can simulate coupled non-Fickian/non-Darcian transport together with reactive processes in nanoporous media. Christophe Tournassat is associate editor of Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, and is member of the editorial board of Applied Clay science.
