Talk: Earthquake Disaster and Research Collaborations with EU(EU-FP7 & Horizon 2020) by Prof. Dr. Friedemann Wenzel

You are cordially invited to the following talk:

Date: 9th April 2013
Time: 2 - 4pm
Venue: Meeting Room, 6th Floor, SA Block, FES, UTAR KL Campus, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.
Title: Forensic Disaster Analysis – A New Approach towards Large-Scale Disasters
Speaker: Prof. Friedemann Wenzel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany


Prof. Friedemann Wenzel is currently a professor at the Geophysical Institute, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, a position he has held since 1994. Prof. Wenzel has been involved in research since 1979 and was the Principal Research Scientist for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Division of Exploration Geoscience, Sydney, and Fellow at School of Earth Sciences of Macquarie University, Sydney. He also served as the Director of the department 'Structure of the Earth' at GeoForschungs Zentrum Potsdam, and Professor of Geophysics at Potsdam University from 1992 to 1994.
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.
