Summary

I am a Civil Engineer, M.Sc. in Water Science and Engineering and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering candidate, with technical and management skills for water-related projects, enterprising, with leadership and management qualities. I am particularly motivated towards the integration of both the technique and the humanities to be applied with responsibility, commitment and ethics and thus achieve high performance in both professional and personal fields. I have professional experience as a hydrologist and hydraulic engineer in several large-scale projects for both the private and public sectors, in areas such as flood risk assessments, drainage design, water systems modelling, environmental studies and river works. My desire is to expand my expertise and knowledge in a challenging environment.
