Damià Vericat is a fluvial geomorphologist with interests in sediment transport and ecohydraulics. He holds undergraduate and doctoral degrees from the University of Lleida. His research was supervised by Ramon J. Batalla and co-supervised by Celso Garcia from the University of the Balearic Islands. During his PhD, Damià was a visiting student at five international institutions, including the: Freie Universität Berlin (supervised by P. Ergenzinger); University of Dundee (supervised by A. Werritty); Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (supervised by H. Habersack); University of the Balearic Islands (supervised by C. Garcia); and the University of British Columbia (supervised by M. Church). After he was awared his PhD in 2005, whereupon he immediately took up a position as a postdoctoral research assistant at the Forest Technology Centre of Catalonia. Since then, Damià held a postdoctoral fellowship at Aberystwyth University (2007-09) and a Juan de la Cierva Fellowship at the Forest and Technology Centre of Catalonia during 2009 and 2011. He has recently returned to the University of Lleida where he is now funded by a personal Ramon y Cajal Fellowship.
Damià's research interests include monitoring and modelling of fluvial dynamics, with special emphasis on sediment transport and associated geomorphic processes (e.g. sedimentary and morphological processes in the river channel). His research extends to sediment and water management in regulated rivers (e.g. design and implementation of flushing flows), and to eco-geomorphology (e.g. interactions between macroinvertebrate drift and sediment transport).
