I am working at the SED as postdoctoral researcher since February 2016.
The focus of my research interest is the reconstruction of past environmental, geological and climate changes using geological archives (mostly lake sediments). I am especially interested in the seismic and aseismic, partly tsunamigenic, events recorded in lake sediments, studying their causes, their frequency and their deposits. At the SED I am focusing on the reconstruction of the paleoseismic events with the aim of extending the earthquake catalogue. I am also involved in the coordination and writing of diverse proposals.
