I am a Chilean PhD Student at University of Leeds with strong background on mathematics and physics. My area of expertise is seismology both observational and theoretical.
I do programming using Python, but I also have experience in Fortran and Matlab and also I have experience using specialised software: SAC, GMT, LaTeX.
Mother language: Spanish.
My PhD is funded by Conicyt Chile, through its scholarship Becas Chile.
Non Academic Experience:
- Designing and implementing the Chilean National Seismic Network for National Emergencies Office (ONEMI, Chile).
- Operate seismic network for volcano monitoring in southern Chile, including basic data process for National Geological and Mining Survey (SERNAGEOMIN, Chile).
- Two years of teaching experience at Universidad del Bio Bio, Chile, as part-time lecturer in Physics.
- Two years as Demonstrator at University of Leeds, for following modules: Time Series Analysis, Volcanic Processes, Inverse Theory and Global Seismology.
- Fieldwork installing seismometers and GPS during seismic crisis in Chile, Maule earthquake and Aysen Fjord seismic swarm.
- I worked for my Master's thesis in Nonlinear waves, project FONDECYT 1100990.
- I analysed seismic data from Lastarria Volcano (northern Chile), project FONDECYT 1030800.
- Currently a Postgraduate Researcher at Institute of Geophysics and Tectonics, University of Leeds.
My main interests are:
- Physical models which explains seismic activity in volcanic settings, rupture processes, radiation and moment tensor inversions.
- Volcano monitoring, seismic data analysis.
- Forward seismic modelling and moment tensor inversions.
- Solid-Fluid interactions in volcanic environments.
- Viscoelastic and plastic wave propagation.
- BSc, Physical Sciences, Universidad de Concepcion, Concepcion, Chile
