My research deals with the chain of environmental-processes that act at the landscape scales, integrating hydrology, sediments, vegetation and human activities, with an emphasis on hazardous earth-processes. - Up to present I have been working mainly on the tsunamis of Sumatra (2004), Java (2006) and Tohoku (2011); on the volcanoes Semeru, Merapi and Merbabu in Indonesia, and on the volcanoes Unzen-Fugendake, Towada and Numazawa in Japan. More recently, I have also started to develop a portfolio on tsunamis and floodplain/estuarine processes in the Canterbury area (New Zealand).This apparently broad research scope aims at breaking free from the disciplines that we are educated in, in order to look into scientific questions from a different stand.
