Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

  • Physics-based seismicity model development and understanding the impact of Coulomb stress-field uncertainties on earthquake forecast and seismic hazard model performance
  • Investigating the role of static/quasi-static Coulomb stress transfer in earthquake-triggering processes and delineating spatiotemporal seismicity distributions
  • Operational earthquake forecasting: development of new types of forecasting experiments beyond those implemented into the CSEP (Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability) testing center
  • Statistical seismology
  • Development and evaluation of seismicity models used as input for PSHA: understanding the impact of various types of input data as well as their quality/quantity (earthquake-catalog, geodetic, stress, focal mechanism) on hazard model performance
