The Space Symposium / Alpbach reunion that I organised on June 7, 2019 was absolutely awesome. My to do list said "have the best time ever" and I did! This truly is a special bunch of people. I look forward to seeing them again in 5 years or (hopefully) a bit sooner. At the very least, we'll try to stay more in touch.
I found a new job! From January 6, 2020, I will start as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Leeds! I will work with Tim Craig on intermediate depth earthquakes in subduction zones using both seismological observations and geodynamic modelling! I can't wait! Yorkshire here I come!
After struggling through some long days and nights, I managed to submit the revisions to my SC2DR paper on May 31st! And, as the cherry on the cake, the revisions for the Palu paper (by Thomas Ulrich) on which I am a co-author were also submitted on May 30. Now the wait begins again.
I am organising a Symposium on Geophysical Space Missions to Terrestrial Planets to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the Summer School Alpbach! We have lots of great speakers lined up and many Alpbach Green Team people are joining for the reunion. You can find more information here. I can't wait!
After a relatively quick review process with two rounds of moderate and minor changes, the ORCHID paper on 'Intermediate-depth earthquakes controlled by incoming plate hydration along bending-related faults' has now officially been accepted in Geophysical Research Letters! You can find it here.
In a big collaborative effort of the ASCETE project led by LMU, we submitted the paper 'Coupled, Physics-based Modeling Reveals Earthquake Displacements are Critical to the 2018 Palu, Sulawesi Tsunami' to Pure and Applied Geophysics. The preprint is available on EarthArXiv.
