Dr.rer.nat. Bernhard Schuberth


Research scientist at the Geophysics Section of the Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.


His research is focused on a multidisciplinary approach combining computational seismology, geodynamics and mineral physics, which aims at a better understanding of deep Earth structure and dynamics. He has addressed problems regarding the accuracy of numerical methods for 3-D seismic wave propagation, the generation of synthetic models of mantle heterogeneity based on dynamic flow calculations, and the analysis of their thermal and elastic signature as well as a quantitative assessment of their seismic expressions against tomography. Currently, he concentrates on a novel joint forward modeling framework in which geodynamically derived models of seismic mantle structure are used in simulations of global wave propagation.


Dr. Bernhard Schuberth completed his studies of geophysics in 2003 and obtained his PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2009, both at the LMU Munich. He was then granted a European Marie-Curie Intra-European Fellowship, and set up his own research project at GéoAzur, Université de Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France. After two years in Nice, he returned to Munich in early 2012 and continues his research in the geodynamics group of the Geophysics Section at LMU.
