I am guest scientist at GFZ and cooperate with several groups and scientists on earthquake observations, surface displacement data and software development.
I am with the Kiel university and lead an Emmy-Noether research group, funded by DFG, on improved combination of geodetic and seismological data for earthquake source analyses. More information can be found here http://www.bridges.uni-kiel.de.
My main research focus on characterizing earthquake sources. I also study aseismic faulting and volcano-related deformation processes.
My expertise is in space-borne SAR (Synthetic Aperture RADAR) data processing and analysis. In these InSAR data I am primarily looking at crustal deformation signals as caused by larger and/or shallow earthquakes. Using these data of measurable surface displacement I am analysing the properties of the earthquake sources and on the fly I try to improve our techniques methodological. One of my specialities here is the detailed consideration of data errors in the analysis and the error propagation to estimate the model qualities. I also try, where possible, to combine different instrumental data sets to better constrain the models. Where possible I am using as many SAR data as possible, GPS if available, and since recently also seismic data. For the latter, the combination of geodetic and seismic data, I work on methods how to best join these very different data types.
Ich bin Projektleiterin der DFG-geförderten Emmy-Noether Forschergruppe "Brückenschlag zwischen Geodäsie und Seismologie" an der Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel. Mehr Informationen dazu finden Sie auf http://www.bridges.uni-kiel.de/
