After having been a researcher at the CNRS, Michel Campillo is professor of geophysics at the University of Grenoble. He is a member of the Académie des Sciences and of the Institut des Sciences de la Terre (ISTerre). Michel Campillo is interested in both the processes responsible for earthquakes and the seismic waves that reveal the structure of the Earth. He has studied major earthquakes but also the phenomena of transient deformation highlighted in recent years. He proposed innovative methods for imaging the Earth from ambient seismic noise and multiply scattered waves. His current work focuses on the temporal monitoring of the mechanical properties of rocks associated with tectonic deformations.
