My research aims mainly at understanding better the relationship between crustal deformation, earthquakes, and landscape evolution. I am interested in developing new approaches combined from field observations, satellite imagery, and physically based models. I am particularly interested in orogenic context and am currently involved in research programs in the Himalaya, Taiwan, Tien Shan, and Sumatra.
