One of my specialities is the structural analysis at volcanoes and fault interactions. See my Emmy Noether group

Explosive volcanism

Using computer vision and radar techniques we study volcano summits in unprecedented resolution. See my ERC group.

Displacements measured by in-situ and remote sensing techniques allow studying the physics and application of new modelling tools.

Volcanoes are multi-hazards, including eruptions, earthquakes, landslides. This we monitor and model at sites worldwide.

If you have strong interests in volcanoes and computing, and seek new challenges, please contact me and we find a project for you!


Project planning

Project planning rarely happens at my desk. 

If not doing science, I am on or in the water!
