Research Areas & Excellence

We conduct high-quality research and train students in modeling of wide range of geophysical phenomena, including earthquake source physics, seismic wave propagation, thermal evolution and deformation of the Earth and planets on various scales, gravitational and electromagnetic fields.

Our team is experienced in interpreting the data measured at the Earth surface and from satellites using physical models based on continuum mechanics and electrodynamics by means of numerically solving the related partial differential equations and


Our excellence is also in developing own codes for most efficient performance including parallel supercomputing. We develop advanced seismic instruments. We deliver worldwide recognized results based on active collaboration with important academic

and industry partners.
