Faculté des Sciences - Université d'État d'Haïti

Kelly Guerrier is a professor-researcher at Université d'État d'Haïti. He is working on the mechanical properties of swelling soils in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince using mineralogical (XRD, MEB, MEBE) and geotechnical methods (Oedometer, Atterberg limits, etc). He is also working (with other researchers) on a seismic microzonation project in Fonds-Parisien, a city located near lake Azueï in Haiti.

Kelly Guerrier graduated in civil engineering from Université d'État d'Haïti in 2004. He completed his PhD in geotechnical engineering at Université Catholique de Louvain in 2013.

"I would like to take part of this scientific mission for two reasons. The first one is, if you are working on fault, you will certainly use geophysics. I practice applied geophysics for civil engineering (on shore) since 2006 and I would to see how it is practiced off shore. The second one is that I want to learn more about other parts of Geosciences. So I think that the Nautilus scientific cruise is a good opportunity for me to reach these aims."


Kelly participated in the following Ocean Exploration Trust expeditions:
