I am a Research Scientist in the Energy Geosciences Division of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley Lab. I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Geology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) and a joint M.Sc. Degree in Applied Geophysics from TU Delft (Netherlands), ETH Zurich (Switzerland), and RWTH Aachen (Germany). In 2018, I received a PhD from the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom) in which I investigated the spatio-temporal evolution of a large sedimentary basin in northeast Brazil by means of seismic imaging, subsidence analysis through well-log information and gravity modeling. I joined LBNL in 2018 as a postdoctoral researcher, to work in the application of fiber-optic sensing for near-surface imaging.
My research at LBNL focuses on developing and using seismic techniques for subsurface imaging, with the aim of understanding the dynamics of subsurface processes for environmental and energy-related applications. My expertise lies in the application of distributed acoustic sensing, DAS, and classic seismic techniques to these problems. I also focus on developing fiber-optics based sensing approaches for monitoring long-term strain and deformation using DAS and DSS (Distributed Strain Sensing), as well as temperature using Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS).
