Profiel

 

José A. Á. Antolínez is an assistant professor on Emerging Technologies for Nature Based Solutions in the Coastal Engineering group of the Hydraulic Engineering department at TU Delft university. Throughout his collaboration in national and international research projects, he conducted research on hybrid modeling, statistical downscaling, climatic attribution, pattern recognition, and machine learning applied to questions related to climate change, earth-sciences, oceanography, and coastal and estuarine processes, for both, understanding the past and predicting the future.

José A. Á. Antolínez current research focuses on how to engineer nature-based solutions to global coastal communities under climate change. To achieve this mission, he focuses on: i) understanding physical processes and corresponding coastal impacts; ii) linking these two with large-scale climatic and anthropogenic drivers; iii) developing parameterization schemes of coastal processes for predictive modelling; iv) increasing the efficiency in predictive modelling; and v) improving the usability of model predictions for coastal management and decision making. His experimental designs are often supported by hybrid models that combine observations, physical models, and artificial intelligence. His research is being embedded in education to lay down the foundations of future coastal engineering, engineering for soft and resilient solutions, where nature coexists and makes a big societal impact.

José A. Á. Antolínez is an assistant professor on Emerging Technologies for Nature Based Solutions in the Coastal Engineering group of the Hydraulic Engineering department at TU Delft university. He has a degree in Civil Engineering, a M.Sc. in Structures, a M.Sc. in Integrated Coastal Zone Management, and a Ph.d. in Civil Engineering for Environmental and Water Sciences. His PhD was supported by a FPU fellowship, that pushed him to combine research and teaching in the Environmental Hydraulics Institute (IH Cantabria) and at Cantabria University (UC) in Spain. During the PhD, he also visited and collaborated with researchers at several institutions abroad such as USGS Santa Cruz, Oregon State University, Duke University, Deltares, and Auckland University. After his PhD, he worked for two years in the Applied Morphodynamics department at Deltares as medior advisor. At TUD he is PI of several projects and he currently supervises several PostDoc, PhDs, MSc and Bachelor thesis.
