The Institut Universitaire de France, whose mission is to promote the development of high-level research in universities and to encourage the excellence of the men and women in its university ecosystem, wanted to reward her creativity, scientific rigour and interdisciplinary risk-taking in her research work.

Anne Mangeney’s IUF project concerns the interpretation of waves generated by landslides in order to constrain their characteristics and dynamics. It is based on an interdisciplinary approach combining laboratory experiments, numerical simulations and field observations. The aim of this project is to reveal, at an unprecedented level of detail, the complexity of landslides and the tsunamis they generate, as well as the associated risks. This work will also seek to develop innovative strategies for detecting, quantifying and monitoring these natural processes and their links with climate change and seismological or volcanic activity.
