My research activity is mainly focused on computational fluid dynamics using HPC (High PerformanceComputing) and its application to coastal engineering. I work on the development of a novel meshless particle method (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics - SPH) to study free-surface problems with real-life applications.


I am the main developer of the free software DualSPHysics, available at www.dual.sphysics.org and sourceforge.net/projects/dualsphysics. DualSPHysics is an open-source code developed and redistributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License since 2011. DualSPHysics is a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics numerical model developed to study free-surface flows such as breaking waves, tsunamis, wave-structure interactions and wave energy devices. The code is the product of a collaborative effort amongst researchers at the University of Vigo (Spain) and the University of Manchester (UK).


I collaborate with research centres in Spain, UK, Belgium, Portugal and Italy. I am also involved in numerous and varied research projects and collaborations with these world-leading institutions to study real-life engineering problems using CFD methods.
