Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

Monitoring active volcanoes (such as Colima, Merapi and Lascar) by optical cameras and digital image correlation techniques in combination with TerraSAR-X interferometry. The focus lies at the detection and quantification of deformation in the region of the dome, to increase our understanding of the processes governing dome growth and collapse, as well as the potential influence of external factors (e.g. local or regional earthquakes) on the activity of the dome.
