Professor Juliet Biggs
My research focusses on using satellite data to study ground deformation and topographic changes due to volcanic, magmatic, anthropogenic and tectonic processes. I work closely with volcano observatories and space agencies to improve the availability and uptake of satellite data for volcano monitoring. I am developing machine learning approaches to manage very large datasets with applications to global volcano monitoring and detecting more localised deformation in the UK. I have worked extensively on the tectonics of the East African Rift, from the fault systems of Malawi to the magmatic systems of Ethiopia and Kenya.
Dr Ophelia George
I provide technical support to the geophysics research group in preparation of field projects as well as handle some of the preprocessing and archiving of the data from said fieldwork.
My research focuses on the atmospheres and interiors of planets in our solar system, primarily using infra-red spectroscopic observations from spacecraft missions and ground-based telescopes.
Dr Max Werner
Here's some verbage: My research focuses on tectonic and human-induced earthquakes, their seismic hazards and disaster resilience. I use seismology, statistics, numerical modelling and machine learning to study and forecast earthquake potential.
