Prof. Dr. Alice-Agnes Gabriel, is a professor for Earthquake Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, Germany. Her research focuses on understanding the physics of earthquakes using physics-based forward models, innovative observation techniques and high-performance computing to bridge spatio-temporal scales. She received her Diploma in Physics from TU Dresden in 2008 and her Ph.D. in seismology at ETH Zurich in 2013.
Gabriel's career is distinguished by prolific modeling of large and small earthquakes, tsunami and seismic wave propagation realised on some of the largest supercomputers worldwide. In 2020, she received the PRACE Ada-Lovelace Award for HPC as well as the Charles F. Richter Early-Career Award of the Seismological Society of America. She has been the PI or Co-PI of several large-scale collaborative research projects including her ERC Starting Grant "Truly Extended Earthquake Rupture (TEAR)" and the “Centre of Excellence for Exascale in Solid Earth (ChEESE)”.
