Prof. Boris Kaus

Boris Kaus has been professor of geophysics and geodynamics at JGU since 2011. He studies geological processes and works on identifying the underlying physics that control these processes. He translates geological phenomena into mathematical equations and is able to simulate millions of years in only a few days using numerical models. He has received several awards for his research, among others from the European Geosciences Union and the German Geophysical Society. In addition, he has already won several renowned ERC Grants. As a GRC fellow, he will work on the physics of magmatic processes and develop new research areas at the interface of geodynamics and seismology.
