Vincent Milesi is a geochemist, specialist of water-rock interactions with extensive skills in numerical modeling that he applies to understand the behavior and fate of chemical species in surface and sub-surface environments. He is especially interested in understanding how water-rock interactions control the habitability of extreme environments. His research interests span from the abiotic formation of organic compounds under hydrothermal conditions, the early diagenesis of carbonates in alkaline lakes and how water-rock interactions shape the bioenergetic landscape for microbial metabolisms. Through his career, he developed expertise in laboratory experiments under hydrothermal conditions, geochemical sampling and sample characterization (gas, rock and water) and numerical geochemical modelling (reaction paths and reactive transport modelling).
