Research in solid-earth geophysics investigates the way earthquake faults develop in time and how the earth's interior deforms. It relies on geophysical methods blending space geodesy, seismology and tectonics, tied through realistic physical numerical modeling using High Performance Computing. This contributes to the physical understanding of the length and time scales of active deformation processes and to a more realistic assessment of the earthquake hazard.
