Study Visitor

Mr. Bendeguz Papp, Ph.D. Student, Faculty of Law Enforcement, National University of Public Service, Hungary. Visiting Period: 29/01/2018 to 22/02/2018

ERASMUS MUNDUS Scholarship to pursue MSc in the Netherlands

Service de la solidarité internationale & Hans Wilsdorf’s Foundation  sponsored fellowship to participate in the (CERG-C-UNIGE), Switzerland

My research interest is to better understand the geodynamic processes from space to the core of the earth through the joint study of seismology, geodesy, and tectonic geomorphology. I am also interested in teaming up with like-interested economist and geophysicist to assess the seismic ground amplification and resulting damage & loss. Moreover, the application of optical, thermal and radar earth observation techniques to decipher the earth surface processes always fascinates me.
