I am a geoscientist with a broad interest in investigating, quantifying and modelling subaqueous geomorphodynamic processes and assessing the related hazard.

At the SED, I am working on the project ‘TSUNAMI-CH’. For Swiss Lakes, fundamental information and workflows to characterise quantitatively the tsunami hazard are missing to the present day. The project ‘TSUNAMI-CH’, in close collaboration with an interdisciplinary Swiss National Foundation sinergia project on lake tsunamis, aims at addressing these shortcomings by

  1. elaborating a classification scheme for a first-order estimation of the tsunami hazard on Swiss lakes,
  2. designing methodological workflows and creating a toolkit for the evaluation of the tsunami hazard, and
  3. creating first intensity maps and distributions of warning times for relevant return periods.
