Research interests

I am addressing the problem of geophysical inversion with machine learning techniques. Supervisors: Malcolm Sambridge and Andrew Valentine

Previously, I worked in the field of glaciology. I studied climate-ice interactions and ice flow dynamics of a small ice cap covering a volcano in southern Chile using a surface mass balance model and the ice sheet model SICOPOLIS. Supervisors: Marius Schaefer and Ralf Greve
