Profesor Asociado del Departamento de Ingeniería Hidráulica y Ambiental de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile y subdirector del Centro de Desarrollo Urbano Sustentable (CEDEUS).

 

Ingeniero Civil y Magíster en Ciencias de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Doctor en Ingeniería Civil, Colorado State University, EE.UU.

 

ÁREAS DE INVESTIGACIÓN

Es especialista en hidrología superficial y la simulación de procesos hidrológicos, particularmente en áreas urbanas y semiurbanas. Sus investigaciones se centran en la relación entre sistemas antrópicos y el agua, entendida ésta tanto como un recurso o como una amenaza.

 

Es Investigador Principal del Fondecyt «From coarse to fine temporal resolutions: the formal incorporation of climate change in the definition of climate series for hydrologic analysis and design».
