Research:

My research interests focus on improving the understanding of structural evolution of continental plate boundaries to better assess both seismic hazard and the mechanical behavior of the continental lithosphere through geological timescales. I study the Asian-Indian collision plate boundary, also known as the Main Himalayan Thrust, the largest and fastest-slipping continental megathrust with a multi-scale (spatiotemporal) and multidisciplinary approach integrating regional tectonic geomorphology with more local and shallow structure analysis.
