Efren Muñoz

Efrén Muñoz is a PhD student at the University of Lleida since October 2014 (FPU grant 13/00168; Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports; Spain). His PhD is focused on water and sediment fluxes in the River Cinca (NE Iberian Penninsula), with the objective of assessing (i) the water and sediment budgets at multiple temporal scales analysing the effects of Mediano-Grado Reservoirs on these; and (ii) the long term morpho-sedimentological changes in representative river reaches. Results will be of greta interest to design scenarios of water and sediment management to improve the morphosedimentary status of degraded river reaches. The research is developed at the Department of Environment and Soil Sciences in the background of the research project MorphSed (CGL2012-36394; www.morphsed.es). The thesis is supervised by Dr. Ramon J. Batalla (University of Lleida) and Dr. Damià Vericat (University of Lleida).

Efren has a degree on Geography from the University of Santiago de Compostela, and MSc on GIS and Remote Sensing at the University of Zaragoza. He has specialized in the field of physical geography; he has gained field experience in the field of fluvial geomorphology (Hydrometric Technician, from July 2013 to October 2014 collaborating in multiple research projects directed on the Fluvial Dynamics Research Group, RIUS) and dendroecology by collaborating on research projects at the University of Santiago and at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (CSIC). He has extensive knowledge of GIS and Remote Sensing techniques applied to the Earth Sciences.
