Biographical Sketch

Florian graduated in geophysics from Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre (EOST), Strasbourg in 2008. He then moved to DIAS, Ireland to study the Tibetan Plateau using magnetotellurics as part of his PhD which he concluded in 2012 under the supervision of Prof A.G. Jones. Between 2013 and 2015, he continued working with Prof Jones to investigate the lithosphere structure of the Leo-man shield in West Africa. He has now joined Prof C. Bean’s seismology group to study ocean generated microseisms in NE Atlantic.
