Nikolai Shapiro is the winner of the Megagrant competition, organised by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science for the period 2018-2020. His project to analyse ground-based and satellite geophysical observations will enable the study of the geodynamics of subduction zones in the Russian Far East (Kuril-Kamchatka). His laboratory will interpret these data using the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, with the aim of developing improved structural and dynamic models of the subduction zones and zones of volcanic activity in this region.
