Gunatilake, Thanushika

PhD Student



My Master degree was about monsoon-related seismicity in Northwest India and to expand this topic my research will focus on the quantification of earthquakes and their response within the earth interior. To understand different processes, as well as the sequences of seismicity, numerical modeling will be conducted. To be continued.
