Director, O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory
Oregon State University
Pedro Lomonaco joined Oregon State University is the Director of the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory and serves as co-PI of the NHERI Experimental Facility for coastal hazards engineering at OSU. Prior to joining OSU, Dr. Lomonaco was Head of the Hydraulics, Coasts and Offshore Laboratory at the University of Cantabria, in Spain. Prior to that, he was a Research Officer of the National Research Council’s Canadian Hydraulics Centre, in Ottawa, where he designed and executed physical model testing of hydraulic, coastal and ocean structures. Dr. Lomonaco manages and coordinates all of the research activities at the HWRL. His scientific activity primarily deals with studies of physical and numerical modelling of wave generation and propagation, wave-structure interaction, stability of coastal and submarine structures, behaviour of floating structures, hydrodynamics, and non-linear behaviour of long-waves in shallow waters.
