Research Software Engineer

Dr. Maria Chertova


Maria received her bachelor’s in Geology and master’s in Geophysics from Novosibirsk State University, Russia. During 2009-2017 she has been working first as PhD Candidate and later as a PostDoc at University of Utrecht, Faculty of Geosciences. There she has been working on 3D numerical modelling of subduction evolution in the Western Mediterranean region. This research resulted in numerous publications in highly-cited journals and oral presentations at international conferences. One of her accomplishments was creating of the world’s first full 3D numerical model of a subduction region which was later extended with integration of present day seismic observations. She enjoys working on complex tasks in numerical modelling domain and enjoys implementing her out-of-box thinking capabilities in solving issues both inside and outside her core competence.
