RESEARCH INTERESTS AND GENERAL OUTCOMES
Damià's research specialisms lie in fluvial geomorphology. Specific interests include fluvial sediment transport, channel morphodynamics and ecohydraulics. He is author of more than 100 publications at national and international level, including peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, proceedings contributions, and technical reports linked to research projects. He is author in more than 40 international peer-reviewed publications. He has been involved in the organization of national and international conferences/meetings and workshops, he holds three awards, he has participated in more than 50 research projects including research contracts; he has a patent, he has co-supervised 3 PhD students and is currently supervising 6 more students. Damià has reviewed more than 30 international papers and two USA National Science Foundation Research Projects (Geomorphology & Land-Use Dynamics Program). He is currently the Principal Investigator of a research project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Research, development and Innovation) aiming at coupling channel morphodynamics and ecological diversity in human-stressed fluvial systems (www.morphsed.es).
