Introduction: I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris. My main research interests are earthquakes that occur in subduction zones. My work aims at better understanding their physics using data analysis (seismic catalogs and seismic waveforms).
During my PhD at ISTerre, Grenoble, I used Repeatings Earthquakes (seismic events that come from the same rupture zone and that present highly similar waveforms) to assess the link between seismic and aseismic slip in the Japanese subduction zone. I mainly focused on the Boso Peninsula and Kanto areas. I am very familiar with the analysis and processing of seismic waveforms.
I am also interested in deep-focus earthquakes that occur at depth larger than 300km, especially in studying their spatio-temporal dynamics to better constrain their mechanisms. Recently, I started to work on experimental studies that are analogues to shallow and deep-focus earthquakes. This is my first visit to ERI (I am here for 2 months) and I am looking forward to meeting people, establishing new research collaborations and indulging in Japanese food.
