Consulting

I support finding a fitting solution - I’m developing all-in-one solutions and support finding solutions within the special field of seismology and related geotechnical applications. My expertise relates to seismic monitoring, seismic data acquisition, seismic data communication and seismic data processing and their application to near real-time. The usage of open data and free software is a key consideration when developing projects.

Geoscientific Software Development

Geoscientific Software Development

Development of free scientific software - Automatization of processes, implementation of new algorithms, data visualization, development of interfaces to existing software solutions, web-based data communication, usage of open data….I’m finding a solution for most problems. The usage of free software and open data enables a quick and efficient implementation. The in-house developed software psysmon provides a flexible framework for seismological data processing.

Hardware Prototype Development

Hardware Prototype Development

Development of custom-built open design hardware - I’m using the advantages of development platforms like BeagleBoneBlack, Arduino and RaspberryPi to efficiently implement nonstandard requirements in the field of geoscientific data acquisition. When commercial off-the-shelf products aren’t sufficient, I’m looking forward to analysing the demands and providing a custom-made solution.

Seismic Measurement Systems

Seismic Measurement Systems

Design and implementation of seismic measurement systems - I provide support designing measurement systems for seismological requirements and all related areas where the measurement of ground vibration is needed. Together we will find a fitting solution of the instrumentation and the software for the whole data flow from the analogue sensor, the digitization, the data storage, the power supply and the telemetric data communication.

Seismological Data Analysis

Seismological Data Analysis

Processing and interpretation of seismological data - My expertise is related to the detection, characterization and localization of seismic events and the analysis of the seismic background noise. A major topic is the handling of weak seismic signals and the processing of data from small seismic networks, mini-arrays and single-stations. With the in-house developed software psysmon I can react quickly to special needs, which handling would not be possible using standard software.

Visualization, Sonification and Others

Visualization, Sonification and Others

Disovering new things by experimenting - I’m looking forward to solving apparently irresolvable tasks, others would wave aside. The spread of accomplished projects is large, for example sculptures based on seismic data, generative graphics using ground vibration data, sonification of earthquakes, vibration-controlled sound effects, acoustic recordings using a highly sensible contact microphone or 3D point clouds using photogrammetric methods. I’m open for everything and looking forward to hearing from your challenge.
