How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
As a geophysical engineer, my research interests are mainly focused towards seismology and earthquake engineering. Since 2017, I have been interested in site characterisation, soil-response analysis and seismic hazard assessment (SHA). My work and experiences have been mainly oriented towards uncertainties propagation and the value of its reduction. My PhD focused on the contribution to the assessment of the benefits of data collection and uncertainties reduction.

When funding or conducting a seismic hazard assessment, facility owners and seismic hazard analysts need to estimate the possible added value that could be obtained by collecting additional data to inform the assessment. This added value needs to be balanced against the budget and time available for the collection of the data. In other words, they...
This presentation introduces the concept of Value of Information (VoI) applied in seismology and earthquake engineering. Content of the presentation were the following: - Definition of VoI - Definition of the study case for VoI application : Estimation of optimal seismic design for a particular building - Sensitivity analysis when a single uncertai...
Conference Paper
In seismic hazard assessments the importance of knowing different input parameters accurately depends on their weights within the hazard model. Many aspects of such assessments require inputs based on knowledge and data from experts. When it comes to decisions about data collection, facility owners and seismic hazard analysts need to estimate the p...

The so-called site effects caused by superficial geological layers may be responsible for strong ground motion amplification in certain configurations. We focus here on the industrialized Tricastin area, in the French Rhône valley, where a nuclear site is located. This area lies above an ancient Rhône Canyon whose lithology and geometry make it pro...
