David Gallach Sánchez (MSc, PhD Civil Engineering. Ghent University, Belgium) obtained in 2013 his MSc in Civil Engineering by the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), and in 2018 his PhD in Civil Engineering by Ghent University (Belgium). David started in 2014 his doctoral research at the Department of Civil Engineering of Ghent University about wave overtopping performance of steep low-crested structures, performing more than 1200 model tests in the wave flume of Ghent University, with the goal of improving the overtopping knowledge for this type of structures. As a project engineer, he worked in various coastal engineering projects involving hydraulic model tests. He was also teaching assistant for the course “Coastal Engineering and Harbour Construction”. David is coauthor of more than 15 publications, including one international journal paper and four international conference presentations as first author.
