Charlotte Wolff : Risk analyses of Cima del Simano mountain, Ticino, Switzerland

Charlotte Wolff

After working for one year with a company developping tools for UAV photogrammetry in Lausanne as QA software engineer, I decided to tackle a new challenge by starting a PhD with the RISK group analyses of ISTE, Unil Lausanne. With a background in both geology and geomatic (Sfm, geodesy, remote sensing), I will study the risks of landslides and rockfall on a specific area located in Ticino : the Cima del Simano mountain, by using and combining geological study and acquisitions with geomatic tools.

Starting date : September 2020

Directors : M. Jaboyedoff and M.H. Derron
