My work

Moment tensor inversion

I am interested in the inversion of moment tensor from waveform data. My work in this area is mostly based on the MTUQ package.

My current main contribution to the code is the implementation of a new stochastic optimization method


I am currently pushing the implementation of the CMA-ES optimization algorithm to MTUQ. This algorithm is easily adaptable to moment tensor inversion, and is very efficient.

Wave equation simulations

I use SPECFEM3D wave propagation software in my projects, in order to calculate synthetic waveforms for the geophysical inversion problems I am interested in.

Specfem utilities

I develop simple utilities to streamline the use of SPECFEM3D, and simplify the user experience by the use of automation and graphical user interfaces.
