My career started in Spain, where I did my undergraduate and MSc studying urban beaches at the University of Vigo; and Portugal, where I completed my PhD at the University of Algarve investigating the short and medium term evolution of tidal inlets in a barrier island system. Then I moved to Australia and started looking into the morphodynamics of flood-tide deltas in wave-dominated coasts within the framework of an ARC funded linkage project which was based in Port Stephens. In 2010 I started researching the morphodynamics of sand aprons in reef platforms. In 2011 I was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship to continue the studies in the dynamics of coral sands. Since 2012, I am the Director of One Tree Island Research Station. I am interested in the contemporary processes and morphodynamics of coastal systems. I started with siliciclastic temperate environments and I am now also interested in the dynamics of carbonate (coral) sand. My present studies on coral sand are mostly based on fieldwork campaigns undertaken in While I am presently dedicating most of my time to carbonate sand I remain insterested in low energy beaches, tidal inlets, overwash, coastal erosion, hazards and coastal management. I am a keen fieldworker and have experience in acquiring and processing hydrodynamic, topographic and bathymetric data. I have also worked with fluorescent tracers for studying sediment transport processes. At present, I am also using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a tool to analyse recent and present data. While I am presently dedicating most of my time to carbonate sand I remain insterested in low energy beaches, tidal inlets, overwash, coastal erosion, hazards and coastal management.

(Post sólo disponible en inglés) On the 10thof April 2018, we had a successful research bites event at Sydney’s Instituto Cervantes. The event was organised by the Spanish Researchers in Australia-Pacific with the support of Instituto Cervantes, and was chaired by A/prof Ana Vila-Concejo (SRAP Vice-president, The University of Sydney).

The three Australia-Pacific representatives in Madrid
(Artículo sólo disponible en inglés, más información en nota de prensa en español.) Luis and I attended the meeting of the associations of Spanish researchers abroad. We were invited by the FECYT and it was a long-awaited meeting. These associations include a broad range of researchers whose commonality is that they […]
