Steffen Abe completed his undergraduate studies in geophysics and
mathematics at Friedrich Schiller Universitat, Jena, Germany.
In 1995, he worked on a one year project on the simulation
of rock fracture and faulting at QUAKES, as part of his
studies towards an M.Sc. in geophysics in Germany. He is presently
conducting his Ph.D. on numerical simulation of fault
zone behaviour and the earthquake nucleation process.
