Resumen curricular
Postdoctoral researcher Xunta de Galicia Reference: ED481B2016/ 141-0, Project entitled:
"Onshore-offshore wave-induced sediment transport on high and moderate energy beach
environments: the role of the sandbars on the beach stability , from june 2016 to present.
Until December 2015, working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Aveiro/CESAM
(Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar) in the project: "Estudo da Dinámica sedimentar
na Embocadura do Porto de Figueira da Foz". During 2014 working in SHORE project:
"Morfodinamica da plataforma interna: Uma abordagem integradora", at the CIMA (Centro de
investigaçao marinha e ambiental), University of Algarve (June-December 2014). Previously
working as a professor and researcher at the Catholic University of Valencia between
2006 and 2104, teaching different subjects of Marine Sciences , including the supervisor
of final degree projects. Doctoral thesis (international mention): "Sedimentary dynamics and
geomorphological evolution of the beaches, submerged platform and dunes of Maspalomas
(Gran Canaria)" defended in December 2012.
Research area on geodynamics (geophysics and sedimentary dynamics) on beaches, dunes
and marine platforms insular and continental, quantification of sediment fluxes using differential
GPS, pressure sensors (for waves and tides), sand sensors, granulometric, compositional and
mineralogical analysis of sediments. Cartography and GIS tools, measurements of marine
currents by means of ADCP, Side Scan Sonar, Time series of data of water masses and
maritime climate, topographic studies (total station, DGPS) and bathymetric (single-beam and
multi-beam). Participation in more than 12 I+D projects financed in public calls. Participation
in 7 contracts of special relevance with Companies and /or Administrations. Participation and
publication of work in proceedings in 15 international congresses. Participation and publication
of articles in book summaries in 10 national congresses. Participation as responsible or coauthor
in 15 technical projects for public administrations and / or private companies. Publication
of 3 book chapters with ISBN in the area of littoral dynamics and 10 publications in Science
Citation Index journals. Research stays in foreign Centers: University of Aveiro, Department
of Geosciences. Aveiro (Portugal), collaborating in project INSHORE (INtegrated System for
High Operational REsolution in shore monitoring).
Experience in organizing I+D+i activities and field surveys experience in conducting
oceanographic/geophysical measurements: seismic refraction, electrical tomography and
georadar. Knowledge of specific geophysical and oceanographic data processing software:
RBR, Midas Valeport Echo Sounder, Matlab, Rayfract, Res2dinv, VisualSunt7, HYPACK,
CARIS software, etc. Field experience in surveys with dGPS, sediment transport
measurements, and participation in more than 15 oceanographic campaigns with acoustic
equipment ; single and Multi-beam Echo-sounder and side scan sonar, reflection seismic,
CTDs, sediment cores, drifting buoys, GIS tools (Idrisi, ArcView, ArcGis, Grapher, Surfer, QGIS
software), and morphodynamics modelling, X-Beach , Delft3D among others.
