Pedro Alejandro Espín Bedón


I am a Geological Engineer, and for the last 9 years I have been working at the Geophysical Institute in Ecuador in the monitoring of volcanic and seismic activity.

My interest is in strengthening the monitoring of volcanic phenomena. Therefore, during the last years I have been interested in the study of deformation of volcanoes and tectonic faults in Ecuador.
