Alejandro Tejedor

I am a physicist fascinated by Earth processes.  I am using my physics and mathematics background to understand how physical processes leave behind their signature on the spatial and temporal patterns that we observe in nature.  The overarching goal of my research is to develop quantitative frameworks and tools to mine the information contained in those patterns, pursuing the ultimate inverse problem of  inferring processes from form.  Given the ever-increasing amount of earth observations from space, this is a fascinating and timely research challenge with a lot of potential for innovation.  My research journey has taken me across disciplines (hydrology, geomorphology, climate), and although sometimes arduous, it has been a lot of fun.  My research has led  to new and unique perspectives in understanding river deltas, landscape evolution and hydrologic connectivity in diverse settings. 

New Position:
I am very happy to join the Department of Science and Engineering at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi 


New Publication:
Check out our new publication, led by Lawrence Vulis about the channel network control on lake dynamics in Arctic Deltas in Geophysical Research Letters.
