I am a Professor at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Universidad del Norte (Barranquilla, Colombia), and an associate professor of the School of Civil Engineering at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (Lima, Peru).
My research work mainly concentrates on the study of river hydro-morphodynamic processes (e.g. river bed form self-similarity, meandering rivers planimetry evolution, and meandering river confluences). I am interested in hydraulic risk assessment and management, river restoration, Amazon River system, ecohydraulics, sediment mechanics, experimental hydraulics, bioengineering application in erosion control, and the scale and spatial patterns of soil erosion. Likewise, I am interested in river hydraulic and morphodynamic numerical modeling, and engineering education.
