Ninon Blond

Geographer working on Holocene socio-environmental interactions in East Africa. My work is based on a systemic, integrated, multi-method and firmly interdisciplinary approach, at the interface between geography, geomorphology, geoarchaeology, sedimentology, geohistory and ethno-geomorphology. My research allows me to understand environmental changes and the relationships between societies and environments at different spatial and temporal scales.
