Welcome to my homepage! I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University. I am interested in all aspects of numerical modelling and parameter estimation that arise within geosciences or related fields. My background is in computational geophysics (PhD at ETH Zurich) and mathematics (M.Sc. at University of Basel).
My current research focuses on the design and implementation of analysis methods for vector fields on the sphere as for example satellite data of the crustal magnetization of the Earth.
My PhD at ETH Zurich was in the field of near surface geophysics. In this research project I developed and implemented adaptive algorithms for electrical resistivity tomography.
You will find more detailed information about my current and past research on my research page. The publications page contains links to pdfs of my published articles. As soon as I have prepared the matlab files developed in the course of my current research I will publish them online on the software page.
The figure in the background shows a tangential vector field that is bandlimited by the maximum vector spherical harmonic wavenumber L=60 and concentrated within North America. It is the 100th best tangential vector Slepian function for this bandlimit and target region as is explained on my research page. Its energy focusing ratio is 99.9%.
