After one year of work experience in Colombia in water and waste management, I decided in 2016 to continue my academic formation in France. During the second year of my master I had the opportunity to meet Pierre-Antoine VERSINI, researcher in-charge of the EVNATURB project and the hydric monitoring of the green wave roof at Champs-sur-Marne, where I carried out the characterization of evapotranspiration flux of a green wave roof during the summer of 2018.

Thanks to this internship and the supervision of Ioulia TCHIGUIRINSKAIA, I started my PhD study in October of 2018, which aims to Facilitate the implementation of Blue Green Solutions by means of an asses of their thermo-hydric performance and their socio-economic valorization at different urban scales, under the co-direction of Pierre-Antoine VERSIN (HM&Co) and Olivier BONIN (LVMT) at the École des Ponts ParisTech.
