My Dphil research involves understanding the application of optical matching with sub-pixel resolution of satellite images where  the results can be used for improving the knowledge of the earthquake cycle – in particular the coseismic stage.  I am also interested in new approaches of measuring  3D surface deformation caused by earthquakes, tectonic rifting and volcanism.
