Since 2018, I have been developing my professional activity as a R&D technician in Global Omnium (Valencia, Spain), specifically in the area of drinking water distribution. The main research lines followed by Global Omnium in this field are related to the smart metering, exploitation of a real time hydraulic simulator, leakage detection and location, energy optimisation, energy recovery and water saving by dynamic pricing and/or pressure management.
Furthermore, I am doing a PhD at the Universitat Politècnica de València. The Thesis topic is about the development and implementation of algorithms for the energy optimisation in water networks. It is forecasted to be defended on September 2019. My expertise includes the generation and calibration of hydraulic models, data acquisition and management, optimization techniques (mathematical programming and metaheuristic) and computer programming.
