Research interests

As an Earth scientist I adopt multidisciplinary approaches integrating empirical and numerical methods in structural geology, thermochronology and geomorphology to improve our understanding of geodynamic processes in the Earth System framework. Currently, I study the evolution of the Himalayan-Alpine orogenic belt by quantifying and reconstructing fault motion, surface processes, exhumation, foreland basin development and landscape evolution. I aim to identify potential feedbacks between tectonics, surface processes and climate by exploring source-to-sink relationships and quantify magnitudes of external forcings on the geologic and geomorphic record caused by tectonic and climatic variability. Furthermore, my research focusses on (i) the tectonic evolution of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt, more specifically the late Palaeozoic to early Mesozoic closure of the Palaeo-Asian Ocean, (ii) the Cenozoic tectonic and exhumation history of Central Asia with respect to regional climatic change, and (iii) numerical approaches to quantify landscape evolution over geologic time.
