Research project:

Studying the initiation of shallow rainfall-induced landslides by analysing soil moisture measurements and soil hydrological processes.

Research interests:

  • Initiation of shallow landslides
    • Disposition of slopes to slope failure
    • Trigger meachanism of shallow landslides
  • Soil Hydrology
    • Analysis of soil moisture measurements
    • Soil hydrological processes
