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.
At long last: I finally submitted my paper 'Modelling coupled subduction and earthquake dynamics' to Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth! On Valentine's Day of all days. This really took a long time: I've been working on this paper for 3.5 years! You can find the preprint on EarthArXiv.
After a good and a bad review, we had to revise the ORCHID paper. Due to a lot of hard work from the data people, we managed to add some more data and refine the manuscript. After a last check yesterday, we sent the revised version back to the editor today. So now we wait again!
I won the AGU Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) 2018 in the Seismology Section! It was for my presentation entitled 'A coupled method using long-term subduction models to provide realistic conditions for dynamic earthquake models'. A near perfect score of 45/45, 44/45, 45/45 from the judges. Very happy!
The EGU Geodynamics Blog won a prize! The blog post by Luca Dal Zilio on his experience at a global science summit in Singapore won the popular vote for best blog post of 2018! I am very proud of the entire blog team! The whole team puts a lot of time and effort into the blog and it pays off! Read more about it here.
I attended the AGU Fall Meeting from December 10 - 14, 2018 in Washington DC, USA. I had a presentation about my coupling work and co-presented two posters of the ASCETE framework. I also had lots of interesting meetings, which made this year's AGU a success!
We have submitted our paper "Intermediate-depth earthquakes controlled by incoming plate hydration along bending-related faults" to Geophysical Research Letters! This is the first (PhD) paper with my name on it that has been submitted. Hooray for progress!
I visited the Tectonics group at Utrecht University from October 22 - 31, 2018 to work on the advanced manuscript of my coupling SC2DR paper. We had many fruitful discussions - also with the LMU Munich team via skype - and managed to book progress on my paper and several collaborations.
I visited LMU Munich from April 22 - 28, 2018 to work on several papers in preparation. On Friday, April 27, we also had a successful ASCETE meeting with collaborators from the TU München and the University of Hamburg, during which everyone presented their progress and potential new projects were discussed.
