Personal profile


I finished my PhD at the University of Barcelona in 2014, during which I specialized in the application of the magnetotelluric (MT) method to deep reservoir characterization. I worked mainly on the exploration of geothermal systems in volcanic environments carrying out interdisciplinary research focused on the integration of geological, geophysical and geochemical data. I then moved to Perth, where I spent more than three years working at CET and the University of Western Australia, applying the same multidisciplinary approach to the geophysical characterization of mineral systems. Here I did most of my work on the Capricorn Orogen and the northern boundary of the Yilgan Craton. I am currently a lecturer in geophysics at the University of Barcelona where I continue to work mainly on geothermal and mineral exploration using deep geophysical methods.
