    Target journal: Geomorphology 

I have attended several national and international conferences and workshops since 2015 such as EGU and AGU meetings, Tectonic Studies Group meeting, FAULT2SHAworkshops. Furthermore, I have been invited for giving talks about my research by University College of London (2017), Caen University (France – 2019) and Mc Gill University (Canada via zoom because of Covid-19 pandemic – 2020).
