Group Members

Diego Martínez García
Diego Martínez García is a research assistant in the Lee Drinking Water Infra Analytics Group and a Master´s student in Engineering at SJSU. He earned a Civil Engineering degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and additionally completed a Specialty in Environmental Engineering. During his degree, he focused on wastewater reuse potential for agriculture in Mexico. He was offered the opportunity to participate in a summer program organized by Veolia in France where the group was able to discover a wide range of solutions related to water and solid waste management in European cities. He has worked at the Treatment and Reuse Group at the Institute of Engineering – UNAM where he collaborated in studies related to water treatment for aquifer recharge, estimation of greenhouse gasses emissions at wastewater treatment facilities and laboratory operation of a treatment pilot plant for water indirect reuse. His current work focuses on a water mains replacement program by using GIS modeling and the impacts of hydraulic transients in water infrastructure.
