Joaquín graduated in 2009 from Universidad Nacional de La Plata (Argentina) with a MSc degree in Civil Engineering. In 2018, he obtained a PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya (Spain). He joined TU Delft in April 2020 as a Postdoc Researcher working on the development of theoretical models and numerical tools for studying the coupling between gas flow in low permeability porous media and fracturing process.
His research interests lie in the experimental study and computational modelling of complex coupled mechanistic processes in geomaterials (rocks, soils, cement-based materials). Particularly, he has worked on concrete durability problems, acid attack of oilwell cements, rate dependent fracturing of salt rocks, two-phase flow in porous media and gas flow along discrete pathways in clays.
