From deep intrusions to hazards in the geosphere. Study sites in Chile, Mexico, Iceland, Indonesia, Etna and elsewhere.
Raised third party funding for realization of research activities.
Scientific publications, reports, books chapters.
Advisor of over 40 PhD students, MSc and BSc students and interns, field and technical training, teaching at University.
Magma travels along dikes, rift zones and fissures, which I study on Iceland and Ocean Islands all over the world. Recent works at Hekla, Holuhraun and the Geysers.
Volcano construction and collapse processes often closely interact. At Merapi, i study dome growth, collapse and interactions with earthquakes.
Fumaroles, Geysers and hot pools offer a glimpse into complex solid-fluid interactions. They are a volcano analogue. See my publications from Iceland and Chile.
Seismo-tectonics, that is the faulting and deformation occurrence associated with earthquakes. I study source processes and stress changes.
One of my specialities is the structural analysis at volcanoes. Volcano-fault interactions and triggering are my favorites.
Monitoring volcano- and seismo-tectonic activities and process studies include satellite and UAV sensing and geophysical technologies.
Change detection and data mining is essential. Photogrammetry and computer vision are increasingly being used by my team.
Simulation of observed deformations and activity changes allows obtaining a glimpse into the deep earth.

There are a number of tv-documentaries. Check this out for instance: Java in Jeopardy - Exploring the Volcano. 52' (GER, ENG, FRE). See also science award nominee short video.
Children textbooks, mostly in german language.
This is one of my favorite. See here if you want to buy.
