Dr. Edson Wendland is a Professor at the Department of Hydraulics and Sanitary Engineering (Engineering School of São Carlos at the University of São Paulo, Brazil) since 2001. He holds a M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS, Brazil) and a Dr.-Ing. (PhD) in Civil Engineering from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany). From 1996 to 1999 he was Assistant Professor at the Department of Applied Geology (Ruhr-Universität Bochum). From 1999 to 2001 he developed research in the field of Petroleum Engineering at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP, Brazil). &#10;His research focus mainly: 1) water resources evaluation based on continuous monitoring of hydrogeological data at watershed scale; 2) computational simulation of groundwater flow and solute transport in fractured porous media; 3) development of advanced numerical schemes based on the finite element and analytic element method.&#10;Prior to his academic activities, he worked with Zerna, Schulz & Partner (Bochum, Germany) in Civil Engineering projects (buildings, tunnels, railways) and DMT Deutsche Montan Technologie (Essen, Germany) in environmental projects (groundwater modeling, Geographical Information System).
