It's me. Jose!

I am a chilean professor working at Universidad de los Andes within the Civil Infrastructure Systems group of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

My main research focuses on the study of structure-soil systems under earthquake loading, through modeling and simulation. An important aspect of my research is that I place strong emphasis on the correct description of seismic wave propagation from source to site.

A major goal for me is to leverage the use of high-performance computing as the enabling technology that will allow the profession to move forward in terms of the power of analysis available to engineers.
