I hold a PhD in Civil Engineering awarded by the Polytechnic University of Madrid, specialising in Transport, Town-Planning and Regional Development, backed up by more than 25 years’ professional experience. I began my professional career in the Madrid Transport Consortium (from 1986 to 1989) to move on later to the role of full-time transport consultant in Spain and on diverse international projects. After working as project leader, head of department and technical director in major engineering firms, I now work as an independent consultant and researcher tackling the fields of project planning and financing, international strategy, transport design and management and town-planning.
80% of the success of a project depends of the qualities of its leader.
Ad honorem Lecturer at Seville University and regular advisor for multi-lateral bodies such as the Inter-American Development Bank and the European Investment Bank. Amongst my published works, the following are worthy of special mention:
- “How to be a Good Consultant: everything you ever needed to know without taking 25 years to find out”. Seville 2012.
- “Manual for tramways, light-rail networks and systems using reserved platforms. Design, Project, Financing and Implementation”. Madrid Transport Consortium, PTA of Madrid, 2006.
- “Manual for the Planning, Financing and Implantation of tramways, light-rail networks and systems using reserved platforms” edited by the Madrid Transport Consortium June 2004.
- “Green Paper on Town-Planning and Mobility” Royal School of Civil Engineers 2008.
25 years is quite an achievement
