The research area focuses on geological/geophysical natural hazards and associated risks. It aims at methodologies to quantify hazards and risks and to develop early warning systems. Probabilistic and deterministic methods are employed to characterize earthquake hazards and risks for buildings and infrastructure systems. In addition to large earthquakes posing threats to cities such as Istanbul we work on the seismicity related (induced or triggered) to subsurface activity such as mining, geothermal energy development, and CO2 sequestration.

Research is organized in the frame of the Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology CEDIM and the KIT - Center for Climate and Environment.
