Personal profile


I am a PhD researcher in the field of water resources management with an M.Sc., in Environment and Water Resources Management. I have experience in water resources system analysis, mainly multi-purpose reservoirs assessing temporal conflicts between water demands for irrigation and hydropower under a systemic approach. Additionally, I have participated in different projects related to the incorporation of variable renewable energies in power systems highly dependent on hydropower generation.

Research interests

My interests are the study of water resources systems, management and operations of reservoirs systems, analysis of the interaction of water use (including ecosystem uses) and hydro-economic and renewable energy modelling. I have experience on implementing advanced optimization algorithms and techniques such as stochastic dynamic dual programming (SDDP), sampling stochastic dynamic programming (SSDP), positive mathematical programming (PMP) and Multi-objective Evolutionary Algorithms (MOEAs).
