Function and Responsibilities:

Research Scientist

Research Interests:

I am a seismologist interested in the tectonics of convergent plate boundaries. I am working both in subduction and collision zones. In subduction zones, I am studying the occurrence and controls of large megathrust earthquakes and processes inside the oceanic slab as it plunges into the mantle. In collision zones, I am interested in lithospheric scale deformation processes accompanying mountain building. My main working regions are South America and Central Asia.

Career:

Since 2007 Research Scientist in the Lithosphere Dynamics Section.

2001-2007 Research Scientist at the CTBTO.

1997-2001 Scientific Researcher at the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ), SFB 267 "Deformation Processes in the Andes"

1997 MSc Geophysics, College of Oceanic & Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University

1992 Vordiplom Geophysics, Universität Karlsruhe (TH)
