Luis Rodriguez

I am a mexican PhD cantidate in the UME Graduate School and part of the group of students of the Global Earthquake Model Foundation. I am a Geophysics Engineer by the National University of Mexico (UNAM) and I studied a master in Engineering Seismology in the MEEES Programme. My PhD research is focused in the application of methodologies for seismic source characterisation and construction of input models for PSHA in subduction zones.
