Come along and network with your peers over a few drinks and some refreshments

 

Gas extraction in the Groningen Gas field has led to the occurrence of small earthquakes over the last couple of decades. While these events have been relatively small (the largest recorded to date is a ML 3.6 earthquake), they have led to a large effort to evaluate the hazards and risks associated with induced seismicity associated with gas production in the field.

 

Professor Adrian Rodriguez-Marek obtained his Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in Civil Engineering in 2000. He then joined the faculty at Washington State University and since 2010 is a faculty member in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at Virginia Tech. Dr. Rodriguez-Marek research and teaching is in the area of geotechnical earthquake engineering with a focus on site response and seismic hazard analysis.
