Pablo Higuera is a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore. His work involves numerical simulation of coastal and wave-structure interaction processes with OpenFOAM.
He is the developer of the IHFOAM and OLAFOAM projects. His research line is centred in the development of specific boundary conditions to generate and to absorb waves within OpenFOAM. Furthermore, this approach has been complemented with the study and validation of a great number of relevant processes for coastal engineering.
