PhD student working on condition assessment of pipelines and reconstruction of the topology of water distribution systems using fluid transient waves.

Civil engineer with a Master of Science degree in Water Resources and Hydroinformatics from Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia.

My PhD research is focused on the use of fluid transients for characterizing and understanding its interaction with pipelines with complex features. I am developing methodologies to reconstruct the topology of a WDS and assess its condition with non-invasive techniques that can be applied to Smart Water Networks.
