I am part of the Earthquake Hazard and Risk Assessment group, mainly working on the Swiss Risk Model (ERM-CH) project. In the past years, I have developed experience in seismic site response with particular topics in seismic wave-field polarization in presence of morphological and tectonic structures (topographic, landslide and fault seismic site effects). In the ERM-CH project I combine geologic information with different geophysical techniques, based on active and passive seismic sources, to obtain information on the subsoil structure.
