About Me Publications
Brian Aguilar is completing his undergraduate degree in Geological Science and Communication at California State University of Bakersfield. He will be graduating in the Spring of 2022 with his B.S. in Geological Sciences and his B.A. in Communication with an emphasis on Digital Media. He is planning on pursuing his doctorate Degree in either Mineralogy or Planetary Sciences because he wants to conduct his own research in the future.

Brian Aguilar is a 2020 SOURCES intern at the Southern California Earthquake Center and is working on the Basin Amplification Seismic INvestigation (BASIN) project. The project focuses on mapping the basement of the greater Los Angeles region. By mapping the basement we gain a better understanding of how the sedimentary basins of Los Angeles and San Gabriel amplify seismic waves and are conducted through using receiver functions gathered from a dense nodal array.

Leadership roles include being Vice President of the Geology Club at California State University of Bakersfield (Spring 2020) and was a MESA leader for the MESA program at Bakersfield College.

In his free time, he likes to go hiking, playing music, reading and spending time with his son.
