My current research is focused on the use of space-borne radar systems (SAR) to detect, monitor and characterize slow moving landslide processes over the Kivu rift area, with specific attention to their spatio-temporal dynamics.

This research will serve as a support for forecasting and risk management systems in the Kivu region.

This PhD research is part of a larger project called RESIST (Remote Sensing and In Situ Detection and Tracking of Geohazards) which aims to contribute to the understanding of the source mechanisms driving volcanic eruptions and landslides in the area extending from North Tanganyika to North Virunga by filling the gap of knowledge on ground-based level and combining this information with innovative earth observation (EO) approaches.

  • Ongoing:

Since October 2016, I’m currently involved into the RESIST (Remote Sensing and In Situ Detection and Tracking of Geohazards) project funded by the Belgian Science Policy (Belspo). My specific focus is on the use of space-borne radar systems (SAR) to detect, monitor and characterize slow moving landslide processes over the Kivu rift area, with specific attention to their spatio-temporal dynamics.

 

  • Past:

2015-2016: Master project (1 year), Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels and KULeuven, Leuven, Belgium. Supervisor: Prof. Matthieu Kervyn (VUB). Title: “Characterising and modelling lahars on Karthala volcano, Grande Comore”.
