Short presentation

I am interested in earthquake source processes and what we can learn about why and how earthquakes occur. I also have a keen interest in the effects of deglaciation on the crust and mantle, how earthquake and volcanic activity is affected and what glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) can teach us about the properties of the mantle. In my work for the Swedish seismic network (SNSN) I build stations, develop software and analyze earthquakes.

Please contact me for a copy of the software for the calculation of the direction of maximum horizontal stress from full or partial knowledge of the stress tensor.
