Jean-Pierre is a professor at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris and Director of the Seismology Department. His research interests include mechanics and dynamics of earthquake sources, full wave field propagation in complex geological media and site effects, and dynamics of frictional granular-type media with implications for gravitational debris flows. He is also involved in the development of a plate boundary observatory in Northern Chile, a collaborative project between the French CNRS, the University of Chile (Santiago), and the GFZ Potsdam.
