ER2RuhJonasER 2 Jonas Ruh
Nationality Swiss
Main host institution UPMC Paris, France
Academic background Bsc/Msc in geology and geochemistry. Doctor of Science, ETH in Structural Geology and Tectonics Group with JP Burg
Expertise- I am a structural geologist combining numerical modelling with geological field observations to investigate the mechanics and dynamics of large-scale tectonic processes.
Project Model complex mixing processes at the plate interface at high spatial (from outcrop to regional scale) and temporal resolution, using 2D and 3D numerical codes. Rheological, geodynamical, geochemical and seismological implications will be tested against constraints from structural, petrological, geochemical and seismic data.
