Content / Work

I'm a Geophysicist pursuing my Ph.D. in Earth Sciences, working at the Tectonics and Mechanics of the Lithosphere team of the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (UPC) and the Depto. de Geofísica (UChile), through a dual program -cotutelle- under the supervision of Jean-Mathieu Nocquet and Sergio Ruiz.

I am interested in a wide range of earthquake seismology and geodesy research. My Ph.D. research focuses on understanding the interaction between fast and slow earthquakes, particularly in Chile.
