Ruiz-Pérez, Guiomar. Ph.D.
Guiomar was born in Valencia. She studied Civil Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and, recently, she received the PhD degree in Water
and Environmental Engineering from UPV, in 2016. Her thesis is completely related to the hibrid discipline called Ecohydrology. Since its origin, this discipline has tried
to take a holistic vision of both, Hydrology and Ecology. Despite of the well-known key role played by plants in the water cycle, traditionally very few hydrological models
have included vegetation as state variable. In addition, most of the models including vegetation as state variable are too complex. Hence, high amount of data is required to
implement them. In that sense, the objective of her thesis was dual. On one hand, a parsimonious (low number of parameters) and distributed ecohydrological model was
improved and adapted to be used at catchment scale. On the other hand, satellite data was exploited as a potential and new source of spatio-temporal information. She applied
the proposed ecohydrological model in two study areas at different working scale: plot scale in the East of Spain and catchment scale in a Kenyan catchment. She also developed
a mathematical methodology in order to use properly spatio-temporal data during automatic calibration process. The outcomes of this research includes two papers in SCI journals
with high impact factor, one under revision and another in preparation; more than 15 international conferences and the participation in two Spanish national projects.
Nowadays, she is a post-doc researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU, Uppsala). She is focused on modelling vegetation response to environmental extremes.
Particularly, the main objective is to analyze how vegetation, through acclimation and adaptation, deals against the combination of heat waves and drought simultaneously.
