Research

My research is based on the use of geodetic techniques to constrain the different stages of the earthquake cycle. I'm involved in developing InSAR techniques to measure low amplitude, large scale deformation signals, as expected during the interseismic period. During my PhD, I focused on the measurement and the modeling of interseismic loading related to major strike-slip faults in Tibet. Today, I work with Prof. Mark Simons on the relations between long-term deformations and the earthquake cycle with a numerical modeling approach.
