Research summary

The quantitative measurement and forecasting of precipitation is crucial for predicting and mitigating the effects of flood-producing storms. The main goal in flood forecasting is to provide reliable information to the general public, local authorities, and emergency services under the threat of potential flooding. Although significant progress has been made in the measurement and forecasting of precipitation using weather radars and numerical weather prediction models, there is a need to improve the estimation and forecasting of precipitation during extreme rainfall events in particular, not only for flood prediction in large rural catchments but also for applications in urban hydrology. For ...

I've received the MEng. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Guanajuato (Mexico) and the PhD. degree from the University of Bristol. My main research interests are the application of digital signal processing techniques to remote sensing, in particular to weather radar systems, the uncertainty in the measurement of precipitation using weather radar, the development of polarimetric weather radar to improve data quality, the estimation of precipitation for hydrological and meteorological purposes and quantitative precipitation forecasting using radar and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. The Water Research Group within the Department of Civil Engineering provides a focus to ...
