Carlos graduated in Civil Engineering in 1997 from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Spain, completed a PhD at the University of Wales in the UK and worked as a Research Fellow at McMaster University in Canada.
He began his career in industry at Mott MacDonald in London. He joined KW Ltd in 2004 and eventually became Head of Advanced Engineering. In 2012, Carlos moved to Australia to work on the Ichthys Project and to head the Advanced Analysis Group of IntecSea in Australia. Between 2014 and 2017, he continued that role from London, with responsibility for global coordination of all numerical modelling work across the Intecsea offices worldwide.
