Farshid was funded by Clervolc between 2016 and 2018. His research involved developing a numerical method for determining variable stresses on fractures (faults or magma intrusions) in heterogeneous environments including topography. These developments make it possible to follow in real time the propagation of magma in intrusions or to determine the portions of a fault that have slipped during an earthquake. The inversions are based on a fictitious domain formulation, which makes the mathematical formulation tricky, but which allows faster and more robust inversions than with finite element or boundary element methods. Farshid returned to ClerVolc in 2021, when he worked on techniques of joint inversion of gravity and deformation data.
