I'm a researcher mainly focused on the study of earthquakes and tsunami. I'm working for the French Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and doing my research within the Géoazur research unit, in Sophia-Antipolis, in south-east of France.

Research Interests

  • Imaging earthquake source complexity (2011 Japan earthquake animation),
  • Seismic cycle (simple illustration of the concept, with GPS),
  • Inverse problems,
  • Seismic and tsunami waveform simulation,
  • Seafloor distributed sensing using fibre optics,
  • Tsunami hazard evaluation,
  • Ionospheric perturbations of seismic and/or tsunami origin

Research projects

2017-2020 : SEAFOOD project funded by ANR (PI) to evaluate the potential of distributed sensing using fiber optic cables to monitor the physical evolution of the ocean floor,

2015-2019 : E-POST project funded by ANR JC (PI :M.Vergnolle) to study early-postseismic transients. In charge of WP2.

2014-2019 : Hydroseis project funded by ANR JC (PI : F.Cappa). The main objective is to improve our understanding of the role of fluids on the rupture of earthquake faults.

2013-2017 : TWIST project funded by Office of Naval Research, USA (PI :Ph.Lognonné) TWIST stands for "Tsunami Warning and Ionosphere Seismic Tomography".

2012-2014 : "SEAFOOD starter" funded by INSU-CNRS, Géoazur and OCA (PI : A.Sladen). SEAFOOD stands for "SEA­-bottom Fiber­ Optic Observatory for distributed Deformation measurements".

2011-2013 : TO-EOS funded by ANR (PI : A.Sladen). Project involving French (IPG Paris, ENSG, CEA) and Japanese Institutes (ERI Tokyo, GSI Japan) to study the 2001, Mw9.0 Tohoku (Japan) earthquake.
