Welcome to my website. 

I am a curious Doctoral candidate at the Swiss Seismological Service (SED) in ETH Zurich. 


The Student Outstanding Presentation Award (OSPA) recognizes scientific excellence and outstanding presentation skills. It is awarded only for the upper 2-5% presenters and the oral presentation was recognized for observations of non-uniform pre-​slip with DSS measurements in experiments conducted in the LabQuake rock deformation apparatus.

Oral Presentation: Laboratory Observations Linking Fault Surface Characteristics to the Onset and Evolution of Frictional Sliding and Off-fault Damage

Conference: American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2022 Chicago, IL, USA

Award at AGU Fall Meeting 2022

This 4-​day summer school was held from the 18th to the 21st of July, 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland. It was co-organized by ETH Zurich and EPFL, with a strong focus on the fundamentals of fracture, friction, and elastodynamics and their application in the development of physics-based models of fault slip. Thirty international participants benefited from the expertise of world-renowned speakers while developing their research and presentation skills via poster sessions and workshops.

Have a heart for ETH Zurich
