Theme: Influence of small stress perturbations on earthquake triggering: a joint experimental and modeling approach
Host: Takahiro HATANO
Introduction: I got my PhD. from Institut de Physique du Globe in Paris, in 2003, under the supervision of prof. Yves Guéguen. After a post-doctorate at the University of Toronto, I was appointed as researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. Since 2014, I am also an associate professor at the Laboratoire de Géologie of Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. My research interests lie in experimental Rock Physics and Earthquake Mechanics. In 2014, I was lucky to be the recipient of the bronze medal of CNRS. Since my first visit in 2013, we are currently working with Prof. Takahiro Hatano on the role of small stress perturbations in triggering slip instabilities during rock fracture and friction experiments. I love coming to ERI!
