He completed his master’s degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez. As a graduate student, he collaborated in the collection of bathymetry, wave, tide, and sediment data. He also assisted in the validation of numerical simulations that currently help us understand the hydrodynamics of our coasts and their effect on sediment transportation. As part of his research, he evaluated the Bajo Blanco sand shoal, located just offshore of Rincón beaches, as a possible beach nourishment borrow site for eroding beaches. Currently, he works as a coastal Engineer at SNC Lavalin – Atkins Global.
