Induced Seismicity & Seismic Monitoring of Human Industrial Activities: induced seismicity; seismic monitoring of underground gas storage; microseismicity detection & location; management of borehole sensors and recordings;

Seismic monitoring: permanent and temporary seismic monitoring networks; emergency and post-earthquake intervention; earthquake monitoring, recognition and alert.

Numerical modelling of seismic wave propagation: finite-element, spectral-element, finite-difference, wavenumber-integration, and pseudo-spectral methods; large scale modelling; complex geologica models; geo-models cad-aided design; unstructured meshes; verification and validation of numerical methods.

Numerical simulation of earthquakes: ground motion estimation, also for complex geological models; kinematic modelling of extended sources; upper-limit and near-source ground motion; ground motion scenarios.

Seismic wave propagation: wave propagation through complex geological structures; real  media (anisotropy, attenuation, wave dispersion in layered media, …); surface and interface waves.

Engineering seismology: site response estimation using numerical and experimental field methods; seismic hazard; soil-structure interaction; seismic micro-zonation.

Site response estimation: seismic noise analysis; spectral ratios from earthquake records; Vs estimation; integration of geophysical methods (seismological, tomographic, gravimetric, … investigations); response site-specific spectra;

Active and passive (earthquake) tomography: analysis of the tomographic resolution; joint inversion of earthquake location and velocity structure; comparison of methods. 

Field surveys: seismic noise measurements; earthquake recordings; array measurements.

GPS monitoring networks  for real time positioning.
