Dr. Roberto Tomás (Male) –M.Eng. Civil Engineer, M.Eng. Geological Engineer (1st National Award) and PhD. (PhD award). Full professor in the Department of Civil Engineering (DIC) of the University of Alicante (UA). He leads the research group on Geotechnical and Structural Engineering of the UA, is member to the UNESCO Land Subsidence International Initiative, LASII, leads the Spanish WG on land subsidence, is external member of the Geohazard InSAR Laboratory and Modeling Group of the IGME and leads the Associate Research Unit IGME-UA of ground movements monitoring using radar interferometry (UNIRAD). His main research interest is the application of remote sensing techniques to the study of geological and geotechnical phenomena and rock masses. The main themes of his work are: a) monitoring and characterisation of landslides, land subsidence and infrastructures using SAR interferometry; b) rock mass characterisation and monitoring using 3D point clouds; and c) rock mass geomechanical classifications and intact rock characterisation when subjected to high temperatures or saturation. He has co-authored 112 papers in journals (88 SCI), more than 140 contributions to conferences and has participated on 58 contracts with companies and 51 research projects (3 EU projects, Terrafirma, PANGEO and MOMIT).
