Dr de Lucas, Miguel
Dr Miguel de Lucas is a Senior Adviser at Deltares in the Netherlands. He holds an MSc in Hydraulic Engineering from UPM of Madrid and TU Delft, and a PhD in fine sediment dynamics from the TU Delft. During his PhD, Dr de Lucas began to study feedbacks between biotic and abiotic factors in the context of fine sediment transport. The latter materialised into commercial research projects at his subsequent position in Deltares where he leads the BESMART Technologies research team.

At Deltares in the Netherlands, a research team is developing a portfolio of technologies dedicated to the management of the finest and most challenging fraction of soft sediments. These technologies may unambiguously be called nature based because they make use of natural processes to enhance dewatering and strengthening, induce flocculation and the settling of fines, and protect the muddy bed from erosion.
