Earthquake dynamics

I am a Professor of Seismology in the Seismological Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech). My research is primarily aimed at understanding the physics of earthquakes, combining theoretical, computational and observational approaches. I am also broadly interested in the assessment, prevention and mitigation of earthquake hazard, in particular in large urban areas close to subduction zones, like in Peru, my native country.
