It's me. Jose!

I am a chilean professor working at Universidad de los Andes in the Faculty 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.

I am an active developer of OpenSees and other tools. I also do engineering consulting in projects that involve soil or soil-structure interaction modeling for seismic evaluation and stability assessment.
