In the early morning hours of 4th January 2016, a moderate Mw 6.7 earthquake struck the mountainous state of Manipur in northeastern India, close to the Indo-Myanmar border.

The largest earthquake ever recorded in an ocean happened in 2012 in the Indian Ocean; yet even with modern instruments, scientists have debated how this rupture occurred. This project will use new datasets to fully understand this earthquake.

The Shan Plateau, which passes through China and Myanmar, is not well studied; this three-year project that aims to determine earthquake recurrence intervals of two key faults will be invaluable to assessing hazard there.

Between 2015 to 2017, we developed probabilistic seismic hazard maps for Southeast Asia from a uniform set of databases, a series of ground-shaking scenarios, and an innovative approach for probabi

This project combines satellite imagery, advanced mapping tools, seismic monitoring and field work to investigate the behavior of the Sagaing Fault in Myanmar and improve seismic hazard predictions for Myanmar.

This study sheds light on the structure (i.e. density distribution) and geometry of the volcanic conduit, which have so far remained elusive for volcanologists and hazard managers, and allows us to better understand Mayon's volcanic behaviour during phases of eruptive and non-eruptive activity.
