Funktion und Aufgaben:

·   Senior scientist (part time)

·   PI of the IPOC Creepmeter Observatory

Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

I am a structural geologist  with the focus on active tectonics

I am interested in:

· The interaction of the subduction process and forearc tectonics along active continental margins

· Studying the impact of faulting on landscape evolution (e.g. mountain building, coastal uplift, drainage evolution)

· Understanding the relation between earthquake cycle deformation and long-term behavior along fault systems.

· Determining fault displacement rates and transients on various time-scales (seconds – million years)

·  Instrumental fault displacement rate monitoring: IPOC Creepmeter Array

· 3D analysis of fault activity pattern, kinematic evolution and uplift
