Albert Herrero is a civil hydraulics engineer with research interests in sediment transport processes at the river and catchment scales, as well as their environmental and socioeconomic impact. Part of his work has been also linked to physical aspects of fluid mechanics, turbulence processes and the interaction between hydraulics and sediment motion.
He has a Civil Engineering degree from the BarcelonaTech University (2007) and a Physics degree from the University of Barcelona (2009) and a doctoral degree from the BarcelonaTech University. His PhD focused on the stability and evolution of fluvial bifurcations and the hydraulic patterns involved in water and sediment distribution in these systems. The study combined laboratory experimental work with an analytical approach and development of a mathematical model. It was supervised by Dr. Allen Bateman and co-supervised by Dr. Vicente Medina, both from BarcelonaTech University.
He is currently working at the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA), where he participates in research projects focused on evaluating the effects of global change on the hydrology, sediment transport and transfer of contaminants at the catchment scale.
