Miguel de Lucas Pardo
Expert of Nature Based Innovative Technologies and coastal Nature Based Solutions
Dr Miguel de Lucas Pardo is a Civil Engineer with a PhD in Sediment Transport, with over 10 years of experience in managing research and industry projects in sediment, dredging and ecology. Miguel is the main responsible for the ideas behind the development of several innovative research projects at the Institute for Oil Sand Innovations in Canada, that he executes together with his fellow researchers and engineers at Deltares, as well as with other key professionals at NAIT and UofA. He is also the Project Manager in two very relevant Nature Based Solution Projects in Indonesia, where sediment plays a key role in the development of Nature Based Coastal Defences. Miguel´s passion and main skill is to combine the management of bright researchers and engineers at research projects with the development of innovative ideas and concepts at the boundary of sediment management and ecology.
