- > Modeling the seismic rupture process
Analysis and inversion of seismic data in the frequency and time domain for determing the geometry and kinematics of faulting phenomena.
Numerical modeling of the seismic radiation generated by extended faults in the high frequency range
> Seismic wave propagation
Inversion of arrival time data for the estimate of earth structure models at local and regional scales.
Study of rock anisotropy from seismic waveforms and shear wave polarizations
Body waveform inversion for the estimate of the seismic attenuation parameter in heterogeneous media.
> Strong motion analysis of earthquake data
Spectral and time domain modeling of strong motion records.
Study of the attenuation and local site effects.
> Seismic Imaging of Volcanic Structures
