About Me

I’m a young French & Bolivian hydraulic and computational engineer | International Consultant speaking French, Spanish and English. I’m passionate about water and environmental issues as well as new technologies, especially data analysis and modelling. 

My educational background and my professional experience in various continents brought me a wide range of competences in:

  • Planing, coordination, control y management of projects and teams;
  • Design/management/monitoring of major wash projects;
  • Automation and commisionning in water area;
  • Smart Cities Infrastructure: Digital twins elaboration, data collection and data analysis;
  • Water supply, water networks and sanitation;
  • Water and wastewater treatments;
  • Tenders and bidding process;

Moreover, my professional trajectory within different cultures and types of institutions allowed me to gain a wide versatility in the Hydraulic sector as well as a high capacity for adaptation.

Committed to my job, I worked as a Water & Computational Engineer for the public administration (Grenoble Municipal water supplier & French State) as well as in private consulting firms (French, Dutch, Uk based consulting firm & Spanish company) in various countries (France, DRC, The Netherlands, New-Caledonia, New-Zealand, Spain, Senegal, Algeria…) in rural and urban areas.

smart water Infrastructure

Smart cities

I have worked on and managed major projects of smart Infrastructure (water focused) for the city councils of Hamilton, Queenstown, Central Otago in New-Zealand within the Mott Macdonald consulting firm

These projects were aimed at creating digital twins by combining field data (GIS and SCADA) and hydraulic modelling in a single database and a web-accessible tool.


Water and Sanitation

I have managed numerous projects covering a wide range of topics, including:

  • The creation of water master plans;
  • System performance analysis of networks;
  • Design studies for pipes, pumps, reservoirs;
  • Feasibility studies for the creation of new sectors, population growth, developers queries…
  • Design/management/monitoring of major WASH projects


Computational Engineering/ CFD

My experience at Dinotec has provided me with strong experience in PLC programming and SCADA design. I have programmed entire water/wastewater treat-
ment plants with advanced motors, valves, sequences, alarms, sms.

Moreover, my master´s thesis done on the capacity of CFD modelling to replicate the occurence of vortices, has provided me with an extensive knowledge regarding the possible use of CFD in engineering problems and the theory and settings of CFD´s models.

Water/ Waste Water Treatment

Water Treatment, Fluvial Hydraulics

My Engineering degree and experience working at Dinotec have provided me with a solid knowledge and understanding of modelling and design in the following areas:

  • Fluvial Hydraulics
  • Water/Wastewater Treatment and in particular tecnical/ build/ commissioning experience with the DINOTEC company, including in:
    • Reverse osmosis for brackish water and sea water treatment
    • Ultrafiltration of wastewater for irrigation
    • Conventional lamellar sedimentation  
    • Iron/manganese removal
    • Sand filtration
    • activated wastewater treatment…
