Curriculum Vitae: 
Academic Background: 

I completed my undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering and a master’s degree in water resources engineering. I have research experience in water resources modeling, including hydrology, hydrodynamics, river hydraulics, and surface-water quality. In addition, I have work experience with Colombian government agencies in water resources management and environmental flows determination. In 2016, I received a Fulbright scholarship, which currently supports my doctoral studies in Biosystems Engineering.

Current Research Interests / Thesis Topic: 

Evolutionary multi-objective optimization and uncertainty quantification applications in ecohydrology.
