Alice-Agnes Gabriel is assistant professor at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at LMU Munich. After a M.sc. degree in theoretical physics, performing atomistic simulations of semi-conductors, she changed fields into geophysics. She received her PhD in 2013 in a collaborative project of ETH Zurich, the California Institute of Technology and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) studying earthquake source dynamics numerically and analytically. During postdoctoral research at LMU Munich, she focused on the development and application of the software package SeisSol for the simulation of realistic strong ground motions as well as for studying fundamental earthquake physics. In her current position her main research aim is unraveling the physics of earthquakes, employing innovative algorithms as well as current and emerging HPC infrastructure for geophysics.
