Dr Guillermo Aladama-Bustos

Guillermo Aldama-Bustos has worked as a geotechnical earthquake engineer/engineering seismologist at Halcrow since completing his PhD in 2009 at Imperial College. During his PhD he focused on the area of seismic hazard analysis, with particular interest on regions with low to very low seismicity. At Halcrow, Guillermo has been involved as seismic hazard analyst and geotechnical earthquake engineer in several major projects around the world involving the design of ports, bridges, off-shore oil developments and dams amongst others. He actively promotes developments in his specialist field both through his job and through his continued research interests, especially in the area of seismic hazard analysis. Guillermo’s main areas of interest are: probabilistic seismic hazard analysis, site-response analysis, liquefaction assessment and the seismic design of geotechnical structures.
