Enric Vázquez Suñé
Research group: Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry
Research experience concentrates in the characterization of groundwater, permeable media and impacts related. This is done by means of hydraulic, hydrochemical, environmental isotope data analysis and groundwater modelling. Specialist in Urban hydrogeology, Groundwater Modeling, Hydrogeochemistry, Emerging Contaminants in Groundwater, Shallow Geothermics, Hydrogeology in Mining Areas and Civil Works, Tools and Software Development (9 registries/patents) for applications in hydrogeology. This activity turned into several scientific publications in the Hydrogeology field with more than 70 papers in SCI journals.
Enric was graduated in Geology in the Faculty of Geology of the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) in 1988. From 1988 to 1997 worked as exploration geologist in several mining and engineering companies and as freelance geologist.
From 1999 to 2003 developed his doctorate in Urban Hydrogeology in the School of civil Engineering of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering of the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), been part of the Hydrogeology Group (UPC-CSIC) till present.
Associate professor (1998 – 2003) and Lecture Professor (2004-2007) in the School of civil Engineering of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Enric had taught Hydrogeology, Groundwater Modelling, Engineering Geology, Geology, and other subjects.
He is professor and member of the Teaching Committee of the “Curso Internacional de Hidrología Subterránea (FCIHS-UPC) from 2000 and the “Curso Hispanoamericano de Hidrología Subterránea (CHHS) from 2007. He actively participates in the program of several PhD’s and Master‘s degrees in the field of Hydrogeology and Environmental Sciences. Technical cooperation expert delivering expertise and training on some groundwater issues for the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). He had supervised 9 PhD Theses and more than 30 Master Theses
At present is the Director of MASTER Profesional de Hidrología Subterránea (FCIHS-UPC) and Vicedirector of IDAEA (CISC).
On a total amount of more than 75 contracts as IP developing an intense research activity, which includes the participation in several Spanish or international R&D projects, funded both through competitive calls and through technology transfer agreements with public or private entities.
