About

Sebastián Guillén Ludeña

Sebastián Guillén Ludeña is research and teaching associate at Hidr@m group at the Univ. Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT). Currently, he works on the EFISED project, which is about the efficiency of reservoir flushing in evacuating sediment from the reservoir. This project is funded by the Fundación Séneca from Región de Murcia, Spain.

Sebastián Guillén Ludeña graduated as Civil Engineer in 2006 at Univ. Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) with major in hydraulics and energy. In 2015, he graduated as Docteur ès Sciences (PhD) at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Switzerland (EPFL) and at Instituto Superior Técnico de Lisboa Portugal (IST).

Sebastián Guillén Ludeña worked as civil engineer in the private sector, participating in several projects on hydraulic constructions. In 2010, he obtained the Advanced Studies Diploma from the doctoral program Hydraulics and Energy at UPM. In 2011, Sebastián Guillén Ludeña was awarded with a doctoral fellowship from the IST-EPFL Joint Doctoral Initiative to perform the PhD thesis, which was submitted in 2015 with the title: "Hydro-morphodynamics of open-channel confluences with low discharge ratio and dominant tributary sediment supply". In 2016, Sebastián Guillén Ludeña was  hired as a post-doctoral researcher by the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d'Acoustique (LMFA) at INSA Lyon (France) to participate in the FLOWRES project, which was about the flow resistance for extreme flood events. In 2017, Sebastián Guillén Ludeña joined the Laboratoire de Constructions Hydrauliques (LCH) at EPFL as a scientist to work on reservoir sedimentation topics, within the framework of the FLEXSTOR project.

Sebastián Guillén Ludeña is co-author of 7 scientific publications and of several contributions to international congresses on hydraulics and environment. In addition, he has participated as a reviewer in the peer-review process of several articles for different scientific journals.

The research interest of Sebastián Guillén Ludeña includes: Hydrodynamics, sediment dynamics, reservoir sedimentation and fluvial geomorphology.
