Javier Murillo was born in Monzón, Spain, in 1975. He received his Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics in engineering from the Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain in 2006. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Trento University, Trento, Italy, from 2007 to 2008, an Assistant Professor at the fluid mechanics area of the Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain since 2005. His research interests are in computational and applied mathematics in environmental flows, including numerical methods for flow problems in complex configurations that include finite volume methods and upwind schemes, unsteady shallow water flows, optimal mesh definition, one- and two-dimensional modeling, river flows, urban flooding, dam break flows, debris flow modeling, solute transport, sediment transport and erosion, biological fluxes in rivers, waste water treatment, geomorphological collapse, and numerical modeling of rheological properties. He has published more than 20 research papers in various peer-reviewed international journals and more that 35 contributions to international congresses. He is also part of the GHC ( Computational Group in Hydraulics) of the Zaragoza University http://ghc.unizar.es/.
