Welcome to my research webpage!

My name is Baptiste Rousset. I work as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley. I did my Ph.D. at the University Grenoble Alpes in Geophysics after earing a B.S. and a M.S. from ENS in Paris.

My research aims at understanding the deformation of the Earth's crust on decadal time scales. I mainly use geodetic observations and mechanical models. I am particularly interested in the dynamics of aseismic slip on faults and its interactions with earthquakes. I have been involved in projects in Mexico, Taiwan, Turkey and California.
