Cornelius Langendbruch joined our research group in summer 2005 as a teaching assistant for the department of Geophysics. In 2006 he also started to support the work of the microseismicity group analyzing the temporal evolution of fluid-induced seismicity.
In July 2008 Cornelius received his Diploma in Geophysics from the Freie Universität Berlin. In June 2014, he finished his PhD studies and received a doctoral degree.
His current research focuses on the physics, numerical and geo-mechanical modeling and the statistics of fluid injection-induced seismicity. In particular, he is interested in seismological phenomena which are governed by fluctuations of rock stress. Moreover, he is analyzing the magnitude statistics and the seismic hazard of fluid injection-induced seismicity.
In 2010 he received the award for young scientists of the GtV-BV Geothermie and in 2014 the Editors Citation for Excellence in Refereeing for Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth of the AGU. He is a member of AGU, EAGE, EGU and SEG.
