        Scientist Profile: Earthquake Scientist

        Engineer Jose Restrepo is an earthquake scientist in California. As a child growing up in Colombia, he loved to study buildings. 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.
