Born in Valencia, Civil Engineer from UPV an MSc Degree in Environmental Water Management from Cranfield University (UK).
Currently, he develops his activity as a Phd student in the Water and Environmental Engineering PhD program at the UPV. His research area covers different fields related to the hydraulics and the fluid mechanics. The objective of his research is mainly the hydraulic structures design using both, experimental methods and CFD techniques.
The laboratory work is supported by professors (PDI) from both, the Research Institute of Water and Environmental Engineering (IIAMA) and the Hydraulic Engineering and Environment Department(DIHMA). Their own research areas widen the laboratory ones and they are in charge of teaching courses directly related to hydraulic engineering.
