R&D interests
Currently my research activity is focused in the following fields: i) GIS mapping in earth and environmental system sciences; ii) hydrogeomechanics, engineering geosciences and rock engineering; iii) applied hydrogeology, groundwater and hydromineral resources.
I has also interests on geomining heritage, history of cartography, military geosciences, higher education dissemination and geo-professional core values
