Funktion und Aufgaben:

I explore spatial landslide patterns through statistical learning models to better relate landslide incidents to their triggers, such as heavy rainfalls and earthquakes. Lately, I also study urban landslides and their role in urban development. Follow me on Twitter (@oeztuerk_ugur).
