Research summary

My research interests include seismology, statistical seismology and rock mechanics. I recently completed my PhD at UCL IRDR.

My PhD research included the statistical analysis of earthquakes using the Epidemic Type Aftershock Sequence (ETAS) model and more specifically I am interested in magnitude clustering. I also use acoustic emissions (AE) generated by the triaxial deformation of sandstone samples. AE can be used as a proxy for natural processes such as earthquakes.

Teaching summary

I teach the module Risk Analysis for Disaster Science.
