Almudena Sánchez new CIUDEN researcher

Almudena Sánchez de la Muela Garzón is a final year PhD student at Birkbeck, University of London and UCL. She will be working for the SENSE-act project at Fundación Ciudad de la Energía (CIUDEN) in Spain.

Her research focuses on the analysis of temporal and spatial variations of seismicity in the South American volcanic arc to understand the interaction of active faults and crustal fluids.

– I believe my new position within the SENSE-ACT project is a great opportunity for me to apply what I have learned to improve our understanding of induced seismicity and contribute to strengthen CO2 geological storage monitoring practices, says Sánchez.

Educational background

Sánchez’ bachelor’s degree is within Geology, followed by a MSc in Geological Processes and Resources with specialization in Sedimentary Basins and Energy Resources, both at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. 

During her MSc she worked on processing and interpreting potential fields’ data in the Oil & Gas industry. The core of her role was to test structural and stratigraphic interpretation of seismic reflection profiles through 2.5D modelling of gravity and magnetic data.
