Dr. Luis Sañudo-Fontaneda

Research Fellow and Agroecological and Water Systems Engineer

My Research Vision

I am a Researcher in Civil Engineering as a service to society. With my research I wish to contribute activity to the sustainable development of society and the environment. I am inspired by the need to find solutions to the major challenges that our societies are facing across the world, especially those related to water management and the use of renewable energy. For that reason, my research interests have been mainly focused on the development of techniques for a more efficient use of water and energy in order to mitigate the impacts generated by climate change such as floods and severe drought.

BIOGRAPHY

Luis achieved the prestigious FPI Fellowship granted by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, undertaking his MSc and International PhD degree as part of the programme. Luis moved to Coventry University in 2014 and joined the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) where he is currently developing his activity as a Researcher in Civil Engineering and Water Management. He has collaborated in numerous research projects with research groups, universities and companies across the world.
