Overview

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Exeter, and an Adjunct Professor at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC, Barcelona).

I hold a five years degree in Engineering Geology (2009) and a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering (2013) both by the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC, Barcelona). My research expertise covers the analysis of triggering factors and dynamic behavior of landslides, with special focus on monitoring and early warning systems based on in-situ sensors as well as on geomorphological analysis of landslides. I was an invited pre-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Mountain Risk- BOKU (Vienna, 2010) and at the WSL (Birmensdorf, 2011).

I was a post-doctoral researcher at the UPC (Barcelona, 2014) and at Worldsensing (Barcelona, 2014-2017) on topics related to wireless monitoring and early warning systems. I also worked at the Catalan Geological Survey (Barcelona, 2017-2019), where I worked in a multidisciplinary European project for the application of landslide simulations and monitoring systems on the multi-hazard emergency planning and management.

At the University of Exeter I am working with Dr. Georgie Bennet on the simulation of cascading rainfall-triggered landslide hazards in the Philippines.

Broad research specialisms:

Landslide hazard assessment
Early warning systems
Wireless sensor networks
Rainfall triggered landslides
