Associate Professorship of Landslides

Landslides are among the most severe natural hazards and frequently damage and destroy infrastructure and endanger human lives. The term “landslides” includes a wide range of types with different processes, mechanics, triggers, types of motion and hazard potential. Applied and scientific research and teaching focusses on process understanding, characterization and modeling as well as anticipation and mitigation. The TUM landslide group focusses on long-term anticipation of potential failures in rock slopes using geophysical methods and short-term prediction of landslide activity including the development of innovative field and laboratory methods.
