Personal profile

Research Biography

Luis Camilo is a Hydrogeologist with 9 years of experience in numerical modeling and sensitivity and uncertainty analysis in porous and fractured media and PhD student at Flinders University. He obtained a Civil engineering and master's degree in Hydraulic Resources from the National University of Colombia, specializing in inverse groundwater modeling issues using analytical and numerical techniques for the prediction of infiltration flows in underground works, for which he received a mention of Laureate Thesis.
From his academic side, he has received different international recognitions, highlighting 13 papers at IAH Morocco (2014), IAH France (2016), Colombia (2014, 2015 and 2017), Tunnel & Mining Peru (2017), IAH Spain (2019) and 3 posters (Best IAH France Congress poster (2016)). During his professional career he has participated as an advisor, consultant, and project manager to public and private entities for the execution of hydrogeological studies, conceptual models and advanced numerical modeling for large-scale mining projects in LATAM, Oil & Gas, underground works, prospecting and groundwater management. He is part of several international groundwater organizations (ACH, IAH, ECHN, NGWA, GWR) standing out as the best young hydrogeologist in the ECHN 2014 and is the current president of the Colombia Chapter for the IAH and of the Colombian Association of Hydrogeologists.
He has knowledge in FEFLOW, Modflow, 3D Geomodeller, Inverse Modeling (PEST, SCE-UA, GLUE), Diagrams, AQTESOLV, ArcGIS, MATLAB, Python. As well as in the development of TunWaterFlow (computational tool for inverse modeling and sensitivity and uncertainty analysis for underground works).
