Earthquakes and Seismic Hazard

My research is oriented on the understanding of large and small earthquakes process and on the ground motions they generate at the surface.

Main topics :
- Seismic sources : stress drop, directivity effects, scaling laws

- Site effect : linear and non linear effects caused by the surface

- Seismotectonics on low deformation zones

- Ground motion simulation methods

and also : Effects of seismic waves on landslides, on sediments in lakes and offshore ...

Main zones of interest  : Ecuador, Italy, France, Haïti ...

Divulgation actions : Seismo at school (
Sismos à l’Ecole) network through French and European projects
