Actual research interests

  1. Temporal evolution of seismicity, both regarding seismic sequences and the general seismicity
  2. Evaluation and study of source parameters
  3. Instrumental seismic catalogues
  4. Artificial intelligence and statistical methods applied to seismology (machine learning and statistical seismology).
