Dr. Arturo Leon

Florida International University (Academia)

Dr. Leon’s areas of research include optimal control of reservoir systems, numerical modeling and experimentation of multi-phase flows, resilient flood control, computational fluid dynamics, and physical modeling of hydraulic structures. Within the area of resilient flood control, Arturo’s group is developing a novel approach for flood control based on the integrated dynamic management of water storage in wetlands, detention ponds and reservoirs at the watershed scale. Arturo has been recipient of several honors and awards including an EPA Early CAREER award, being inducted as Diplomate by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers, etc. Arturo has developed over ten numerical models for various applications.
