About the person

Function and Responsibilities:

Manager/researcher for the FP7 projects dealing with hazard and risk, especially those within a multi-type environment.

Research Interests:

•    Development of multi-type hazard and risk assessment and mitigation tools and concepts.
•    Interpreting data and products from earth observing satellites, in particular temporal changes in the terrestrial gravity field observed by the GRACE gravity mission, and rainfall as measured by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission, within the context of climate change studies.
•    Use of glacio-isostatic adjustment modelling tools and datasets for geodynamic problems (e.g., behaviour of past and current ice masses, effect of surface-load changes on volcanism, past and present-day sea-level change).
