Germán Rubino graduated as a Geophysicist (2004) and obtained a Ph.D. (2008) in Geophysics from the Universidad Nacional de la Plata, Argentina. Later, he spent one year as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Applied Geophysics of the Universidad Nacional de La Plata before he joined the Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne in May 2010. Currently, his main research interests are associated to the numerical analysis of seismic wave propagation in highly heterogeneous porous media and the potential applications of these results to extract additional information from seismic data.
Numerical simulations of the seismic characteristics of fractured media and exploration of the relationships between seismic observables and hydraulic properties in such media. Partial supervision of Nicolas Barbosa whose PhD is concerned with closely related topics.
