In many European countries, the coastal zone is often not only densely populated but also the focus of much economic activity. The sea level and temperature rise are poised to exacerbate a series of hazards in the coastal cities, affecting large human and ecological values. Emilio’s research activity aims to foster the development of integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) tools, ecosystem-based approaches (EBA) and nature-based solutions (NBS) to address the challenge of climate change in Europe.
Emilio is a PhD student at University College Cork, holding a PhD Research Position within the “Smart Control of the Climate Resilience in European Coastal Cities (SCORE)” EU-funded project and collaborating in the EU-funded project “Study on the Offshore Energy Potential in the Atlantic Ocean”.
He is a Spanish Civil Engineer (BEng & MEng) with a background in Coastal and Port Engineering and Geotechnics.
