Josimar Alves da Silva Jr.
I am a graduate student at the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) department. Prior to MIT, I received a BS in Geophysics and worked as an exploration geophysicist in the oil & gas industry for five years.
My research is largely related to Geomechanics and Induced Seismicity, with a focus in numerical models. During my PhD, I have also worked in Geophysical problems related to wave propagation in heterogenous media and rock physics applications for shale gas exploration.
In a broad sense, my research areas spans:
Crustal Deformation and Slow Slip Earthquakes
Multiphase Flow in Porous and Fractured Media
Scattering of Seismic Waves in Heterogeneous Media
