Insight Moment on the topic of Dynamic Vulnerability.
The 14.06.22 Insight Moment will be delivered by the following speaker:
Juan Camilo Gomez-Zapata finalized a degree in Geological Engineering at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in 2013. Later, he worked for 3 years sector as a consultant in the engineering industry. He then pursued a postgraduate degree in Geotechnics in 2016, and a European master's in Engineering Seismology (jointly coursed in Grenoble, France, and in Pavia, Italy) in 2018. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Potsdam and since 2018 he works at the Division of Seismic Hazards and Risk Dynamics at the GFZ (Germany). During his career, he has also participated in several international conferences.
His research focuses on scenario-based multi-hazard risk assessment for large cities accounting for dynamic vulnerability, multi-resolution exposure models, and their uncertainties. The outcomes of these studies are compiled in open-source datasets and software, which have been used in risk communication initiatives during the last 3 years.
Join us for this Insight moment of the WG-RIUD on the June 14th from 14:30 to 15:30h (CET time).
