Dr. Morales-Marin studied Civil Engineering in the Colombian School of Engineering and obtained an MSc in Water Resources at the National University of Colombia in Bogota. After receiving a scholarship he pursued his PhD studies in Physical Geography at University College London (UCL), United Kingdom working on sediment transport and hydrodynamics modeling in lakes at the Coastal and Estuaries Research Unit (CERU). Luis has worked for consulting companies in Colombia in the design and construction of hydraulic structures. His research was focused on the study and modelling of complex physical processes associated with hydrology and hydrodynamics in lakes, rivers and estuaries. He is particularly interested in the study of the transport and deposition of sediments and nutrients in catchments. His research also focuses on the understanding of the processes derived from the interaction between climate forcing and rainfall-runoff events. Luis is currently working on water quality modelling in the Saskatchewan River Basin using statistical and physically-based models under the supervision of Dr. Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt and Prof. Howard Wheater. In the GWF project, Luis has been working in the development of solute transport models and water temperature models for different large-scale catchments in Canada.
