About Dr Pierre Rognon

While the earth underneath our feet is generally solid, it can fail under particular conditions - sometimes with devastating consequences.

Dr Pierre Rognon's research aims to predict these conditions and develop appropriate safety measures to mitigate the effects of events such as landslides and avalanches. "My passion for observing and understanding nature drives my research. From avalanches to landslides to earthquake dynamics, I am constantly fascinated by the power of the human brain in being able to understand the 'hows' of such complex, large-scale phenomena."
