Career:Since 2011 German Research Center for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany
Senior Scientist: Leader of the Testing & Evaluation program for the Global
Earthquake Model (GEM).
Since 2011 University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA
Adjunct Research Assistant Professor.
Summer 2009 Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, France
Visiting Professor: Worked on the stress dependence of the
onset of the aftershock power-law decay rate.
Summer 2008 University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan
Research Associate: Establishing the international
collaboration with Japan in the framework of the
Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability.
2006-2011 University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA
Research Assistant Professor: Leader of the Collaboratory
for the Study of Earthquake Predictability (CSEP). Research
fields were seismic network quality, statistical parameters
of earthquake occurrence, and earthquake physics and statistics

Post-doctoral researcher: Worked on the implementation of
likelihood testing for California (T-RELM) and on earthquake statistics
(monitoring completeness of seismic network, relation of earthquake
statistics to physical properties)
2001-2004 ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
Doctoral student: Worked on the relation of b-values (Gutenberg-Richter)
to stresses in the Earth's crust and its application to Parkfield and other
regions and on likelihood testing of probabilistic earthquake forecasts
