About Max O.

I am part of the Tephra-Seismites project, which aims on identifying the earthquake risk in the Hamilton lowlands, New Zealand, by analysing geotechnical and earthquake engineering properties of tephra layers deposited during the last c. 20,000 years. This project is funded by MBIE 'Smart Ideas' and Marsden Funds.

Research Interests

I am interested in coastal engingeering geology. I worked on landslide initiation processes in the past by combining geotechnical experiments, field monitoring data, and mineralogical analyses.
