BioProf. Lapôtre leads the Earth & Planetary Surface Processes group. His research focuses on the physics behind sedimentary and geomorphic processes that shape planetary surfaces (including Earth's), and aims to untangle what landforms and rocks tell us about the past hydrology, climate, and habitability of planets.

BioI work on using geophysics to monitor and interpret hydrologically-induced surface deformation in and around California's Central Valley. My research focuses on improving our understanding of land subsidence induced by groundwater extraction, as well as more subtle surface deformation due to hydrologic loading. I have additional interest in sustainable groundwater management around the world, and how geophysics can be used to help tackle pressing hydrologic issues of the 21st century.
Before coming to Stanford, I studied a Masters in Earth Sciences at the University of Cambridge (2013-17) and spent time as a hydrogeologist at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, ICIMOD (2017).
Additional information about me and my research can be found at my personal website and on the GEM Center site, please see links to the right. My personal website is the most likely to be up to date.
