Mainly dedicated in wave propagation modeling in ultrasound and seismology and its use in inverse problems.

He originally works with the "Laser-Ultrasound" technique, which consists in the generation and detection of ultrasonic wave by Laser. This technique allows a non destructive evaluation of several intrisic properties of materials, such as the elastic (isotropic or anisotropic), plastic, anelastic and elastic atenuation, adhesion and cohesion strength ... It allows also the non destructive control of the thicknesses, presence of flaws ...

More recently, he focused on seismology, mainly on the informacion's retrieval by using ambient noise and its application to Mexico's areas tomography.
