is primarily focused on modeling earthquakes, and understanding the
short term and long term behavior of faults. Using,
strong-motion, teleseismic and geodetic data, what can we tell about
the slip in a single earthquake, rupture velocity, slip functions? How
can we compare the long term coupling to slip in individual
For Masters and Ph.D opportunities do not hesitate
to contact me through e-mail. We welcome students from all fields of engineering,
physics and mathematics as well as geophysics.
