My Master subject is on mechanical and kinematic modelling along and around the Pontarlier Fault System in the western Jura fold-and-thrust belt and the Molasse Basin. The objective is to determine the present and paleo-stress field associated with the complex strike-slip fault system and explore the changes in fault kinematics as the different mechanical  parameters (stress magnitudes, orientation, friction, fluid pressure etc.) change.
