Jose Restrepo

Jose is an earthquake scientist in California. As a child growing up in Colombia, he loved to study plants. In 1978, when he was a college student, a large earthquake struck Colombia. That's when he decided to study earthquakes. He now uses that knowledge to find ways to make concrete structures more resistant to an earthquake's shock. Learn more about Jose in DFTV Show 202.
