David Teruel is a 2nd year Master student of Civil Engineering and Water Management at Delft University of Technology.
In 2018, David obtained a Master in Environmental Technology and Environmental Resources Management (with Distinction) from Imperial College London. His research aimed to increase resilience in cities by assessing the potential of urban sustainability indicators for climate change adaptation". He also obtained his Bachelor Degree in Civil Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia where he specialised in coastal flood assessment, using logistic models to measure the impact of flooding in the Mediterranean Sea. David worked as a researcher at several organizations such as IHE-Delft (the SCENT project, Horizon 2020 programme) using citizen-science measurements to support flood modelling, at the Barcelona Urban Ecology Agency investigating the benefit of “superblocks”, a novel approach to prioritise space for nature and people in cities, as well at the Institut Cerdà where he developed crisis drills for services companies and risk and crisis management plans for transport, water and electricity companies.
David is currently working with Dr. Sandra Fatorić on developing approach to assess climate change risks to cultural heritage in the Netherlands.
