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, and he has been an Assistant Professor at the Fluid Mechanics Area of the Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain, since 2005. His research interests are focused on 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, numerical modeling of rheological properties, and arterial flow simulation. Murillo has published more than 30 research papers in various peer-reviewed international journals and has made more than 40 contributions to international congresses.
