  • Biography
    I am Senior Researcher in Computational Earthquake Physics at the Institute of Geophysics at ETH Zürich. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher working with Nadia Lapusta and Jean-Philippe Avouac in the Seismological Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). I hold a Ph.D. in Geophysics from ETH Zurich, where I was advised by Taras Gerya. My research focuses in the areas of computational mechanics of geomaterials, fault mechanics, earthquake source processes, fundamentals of friction and shear zones, and solid-fluid interactions.
