Research

My research is focused on understaing the seismic cycle from an observational and modeling perspective. I currently work with Nadia Lapusta and Jean-Philippe Avouac on developing and applying a physics-based, cross-scale forward modeling framework for collisional orogens. With this approach we link geodynamic space-time scales of millions of years of slow and broadly distributed regional deformation with seismic space-time scales of rapid and localized earthquake rupture processes. This can be used to improve our physical understanding of earthquakes, especially their spatiotemporal occurrence in relation to observations during the inter-, co- and post-seismic period.
