I am a doctoral student at the Swiss Seismological Service (SED) working on numerical modelling of geothermal system and induced seismicity. I‘m working within the COSEISMIQ project (COntrol SEISmicity and Manage Induced earthQuakes), at the border between seismology and numerical modelling to hopefully improve the Adaptative Traffic Light System that will be used in geothermal plants in Iceland.
