Juan J. Hidalgo

Researcher  at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA), Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). I do my research on flow and solute transport in porous media by means of both experiments and numerical modeling. I am interested in the influence of heterogeneity on the mixing (dissolution) and spreading (extension) of contaminants.
