My study aims to improve the understanding of earthquake mechanics. I combine data analysis and modeling in my studies, and related work that I have performed includes time-space analyzes of earthquake catalogs, numerical modeling of seismic faults, comparison between simulated and natural earthquake catalogs, co-seismic slip inversions and design of earthquake early warning algorithms.
