Ramon J. Batalla

Ramon is Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography at the University of Lleida (UdL), and Senior Researcher on Hydrological Processes at the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA). He received his PhD from the University of Barcelona in 1993 for a research into the sediment budget of a sand bed river in the Catalan Ranges. Ramon’s research is on Fluvial Geomorphology, with the main focus on monitoring and modelling river processes, especially sediment transport in both free-flowing and dammed rivers, river restoration, and Eco-Geomorphology. In addition, his research has a significant applied focus, examining the effects of global change on river processes in Mediterranean basins, in particular the influence of climate and land use change on water and sedimentary regimes, as well as on bio-physical interactions in river channels. He participates and leads competitive projects and research contracts both at national and international levels. Recently (2016) he has been appointed as Associate Professor ad-Honorem by the Austral University of Chile (Valdivia).
