Lecturer in Geophysics Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences


Personal Statement

Welcome to Dr. Pablo J. González website, a Lecturer in Geophysics (since July 2016) working at the Department of Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences, School of Environmental Sciences, University of Liverpool (Liverpool, UK).

My research interests are focused on the understanding of the mechanisms that promotes Earth’s surface deformation and stress conditions in and around volcanoes and fault zones. In fact, our group uses satellite geodesy techniques and develops analysis methods to accurately measure Earth's surface displacements. Using sophisticated computer modelling constrained by the surface displacements, we address questions about the mechanics of magmatic systems and earthquake faulting. We are also interested in reservoir mechanics (e.g., aquifers, geothermal systems) and its cross links with other Earth processes (induced seismicity).

Check out my research pages. If interested in any of the topics, or want to propose a new one, please send me an email. I am always looking for outstanding students to work with. Consider, we are well positioned to undertake ambitious research projects through national and international collaborations within initiatives such as, the £2.8 Mio NERC/COMET LiCS project, or as Terradue/European Space Agency GEP Early Adopter Users.
