Next Wednesday, May 31th, at 11h30, the seminar “Wide-angle seismic and examples of the Brazilian continental margins”, will be presented by Alexandra Afilhado, ISEL
Venue: Room Q4.2, South Tower, IST – Alameda Campus.
Alexandra Afilhado is Assistent Professor of the Department of Civil Engeenearing of the Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa, since 1991. She obtained a McS (1996) and a PhD (2006) in physics, Solid Earth Geophysics, from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. Afilhado authored/co-authored 9 peer reviewed journal articles, 1 book chapter, 7 technical reports, and several scientific communications, including seminars for the oil industry. She contributes regularly to peer reviewing and academic committees. From 2012 to 2014, she was at the Laboratoire de Géophysique et Géodynamique, Géosciences Marines, Intitut français de recherche pour l’exploitation de la mer. Her main research interest is geodynamics and tectonics of passive continental margins. She is experienced in seismic imaging of the crust and shallow mantle, including wide-angle seismic acquisition, processing and modeling. From 1989 she contributed to onshore / offshore wide-angle seismic surveys in Iberian, Mediterranean, Brazilian and Mozambique continental margins, involving Portuguese and international academic and oil industry partners. She is currently involved in collaborative research projects for the Brazil (Magic, Salsa) and Mozambique (Moz35) continental margins, led by Ifremer, with oil industry and academic partners. She is currently co-supervising one PhD student of the Faculdade de Ciências da University of Lisbon. She co-coordinates the interdepartmental research laboratory of Seismology of Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa.
