Research

Dynamics of the lithosphere; collection, analysis and modeling of geodetic data to study the deformation of the lithosphere; analysis of surface deformation to understand earthquake cycle and volcanic deformation; numerical modeling of lithospheric dynamics to link and interpret related geological, geomorphologic and geophysical datasets; effects of rheological properties of the lithosphere on the surface deformation.
