JUEZ Carmelo (carmelo.juez@epfl.ch)








Dr. Carmelo Juez graduated as Industrial Engineer at Universidad de Zaragoza, Zaragoza (Spain) in 2010. Afterwards, he conducted a Master degree in Applied Mechanics, focusing on computational fluid-dinamics techniques. In September 2011, he joined the Computational Hydraulics Group at Universidad de Zaragoza and he worked in both research and private projects and also as a developer of commercial codes (http://www.hydronia.net/). His field of research was focused on the study of geomorphological flows in two fields: 1) sediment transport with uniform and non-uniform grain size mixtures in alluvial channels and 2) hazardous landslides over steep areas. Additionally, efficient computation with up-to-date techniques, such as OMP parallelization and GPU, were also considered during his work. He finally obtained his Doctorate under the supervision of Dr. Javier Murillo in May 2014 (http://zaguan.unizar.es/record/15604).

From June 2014 to Octuber 2014 he worked at the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium) carrying out several experiments for studying the effects of steep slopes over the bedload sediment transport. Finally, he was enrolled in SEDITRANS Project as an experienced researcher for conducting experiments on turbidity currents, studying morphological changes in reservoirs and in the vicinity of man-made structures due to the transfer of fine sediments by turbidity currents. Additionally, he will transfer the academic knowledge about sediment transport modelling and reservoir sedimentation to the industrial partners.

The combination of analytical and numerical modelling with laboratory experiments and field cases constitutes the basis of his research.
