My current research interests focus on studying the behavior of fault systems using the statistical analysis of earthquake catalogs, from the production of detailed catalogs of small magnitude earthquakes to their analysis and development of new models. The collective properties of the numerous, ever-occurring small earthquakes give information on the rheology of the faults, and more generally the properties of the crust, that hosted them. One of the most noticeable applications of this statistical approach is the search for temporal variations of statistical properties before large earthquakes that could help us identify their preparation phase.
