Mr. López has taught Water Resources Management at the Institute of Technology and Higher Education of Monterrey (ITESM) Campus Toluca and he has authored publications in nationals and internationals congresses, scientific journals, and technical books. He is member of the Mexican Hydraulics Association (AMH).
He concluded his master studies in hydrogeology at the University of Arizona, in Tucson. He has been project leader in more than 40 surface and subsurface hydrology projects. Since 2000, he is the head of the groundwater department at the Mexican Institute of Water Technology. His research interests include geochemistry, aquifer recharge, monitoring and groundwater modeling. He is author of more than 50 publications in national and international conferences, member of national and international groundwater associations and graduate professor of hydrogeology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
He concluded his master studies in hydraulics at the National University of Mexico, UNAM. Since 1989, he is researcher at the Mexican Institute of Water Technology, IMTA, where he has been head of the department for environmental hydraulics and currently is head of the department for hydraulic works and equipment. He is professor of hydraulics at UNAM and his research interests include the physical modeling of hydraulic works, inspection and safe operation of dams, sedimentation in lakes and sediment transport in rivers. He is author of more than 40 publications in journals and national and international conferences.
He concluded his Master Degree at the National University of Mexico, UNAM, and his doctoral studies at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Since 2000, he is member of the Chiapas system of researchers (SEI).
