My research interest lies in the interdisciplinary study of the seismic hazard on continents through the application of geodesy, geomorphology, geology and geodynamic modelling techniques. My DPhil project has a special focus on the area surrounding the Ordos Plateau of China, with the aim to reassess the magnitudes and slip patterns of historical and prehistorical earthquakes, monitor modern-day ground motion, and understand the underlying geodynamic forces. My result will have implications on understanding and assessing earthquake hazard in regions between convergent and divergent tectonic settings.
