Mathilde Wimez is a PhD student in the Earthquake group of the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT. Her advisor is William B. Frank. She is working on the detection and characterization of Long Period Earthquakes in volcanic swarms. Her studies are located in Antarctica and in Kamchatka. At the mean time she works with Leigh Royden on the relation between dynamic pressure, depth and age of the Pacific’s sea floor. She is widely interested in volcanism and mechanisms related to it (ex: seismology, magmatism, hydrology, glaciology).
She graduated from EOST (Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre) in Strasbourg, France (2017). Her diploma is centered on geophysical engineering. She did a Master on hydrogeology and glaciology in IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) Grenoble, France (2018). She worked for Total France for her engineering degree on aquifer's flows. She started her PhD at USC Los Angeles (University of Southern California) in August 2018 with William B. Frank. She transferred with her advisor in July 2020 to continue her PhD.
