Crespo, Cristina

I graduated in Environmental Sciences at Rey Juan Carlos University (Madrid) and studied for a Master's in Environmental Geology (Complutense University of Madrid) specializing in Geological Risk. My main research field is statistical analysis of seismicity, particularly in intraplate seismicity, that was driven during my Ph.D. "Analysis of seismic series in an intraplate region (Northwest Iberian Peninsula)". My scientific research also includes the study of the completeness of the seismic catalog, thanks to the analysis of historical earthquakes. Lichenometry dating is also a covered field of my scientific career. As a result, I have published several scientific papers in high-impact journals, and have participated in several communications at International Conferences.

Besides, I collaborated with the German Research Centre for Geoscience - GFZ and now, I work with the Complex System Research Group of CRM. My Research group is also TECVOLRISK (Tectónica, Vulcanismo y Riesgos Asociados) of Rey Juan Carlos University.
