Dr. Jorge Jara Gomez
I am a geophysicist using seismogeodesy to understand the Earth's deformation and earthquakes. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the GFZ Seismic Hazard and Risk Dynamics team, in Potsdam, Germany.
My research focuses on understanding Earth's deformation at different spatio-temporal scales and its relationship to earthquakes. I am fascinated by how Space Geodesy (especially GNSS) and Seismology can be combined to understand better why and where earthquakes (will) occur. I tackle such exciting problems along the Chilean subduction zone, and the North Anatolian Fault.
My research topics are:
• Earthquake Cycle
• Earthquake Preparation Phase
• Seismic and Aseismic slip source inversion
