Research interests

Research project

  • “Cyclic rock-ice mechanical variations in permafrost rocks preparing rock-slope failure”
  • rock-ice mechanical variations in thawing permafrost rocks
  • combining laboratory rock-ice-mechanical testing with geophysical monitoring at the Zugspitze summit Impact of permafrost degradation on the stability of rock walls


Further research interests:
