I am a Geologist that due to my interest in the few knowledge about earthquakes and the interior of the Earth I specialized in Geophysics, PhD in Earth Scieces - Geophysics at University of Barcelona and Institute of Earth Sciences Jaume Almera (CSIC), MSc in Geophysics. My research interest lie in the general area of seismic and seismology. My work relied in the study of the crustal structure and the understanding of it deformation beneath the Western Mediterranean region, in particular the Rif Cordillera (North Morocco). As a result, I have improved my skills in processing, interpreting and modeling seismic and seismological data.

I current work in the processing, interpreting and modeling seismic wide-angle data along TAG zone (26 N), for the further study of the seismic porperties of the Seafloor Massive Sulfides.
