Brief summary of work: I Carry working in Seismic Risk from does more than 10 years collaborating with international centres of recognised prestigo in Norway, Italy, Salvador, Guatemala,  etc. The lines of investigation more notable in which take part are related with the evaluation of the seismic dangerousness and his inclusion in the rules sismorresistentes as well as the obtaining of stages of seismic damages for the identification of vulnerable urban surroundings and the establishment of plans of emergency and of reinforcement.
