Juan Sesma Plaza (44), Senior Specialist within Tunnels and Underground Infrastructure
"What is really fascinating about rocks is that they capture climate changes, and based on this, we can forecast what is going to happen in the coming years."
Juan Sesma Plaza is a site geologist with a love for tunnelling. He builds stormwater tunnels to fortify our cities against the extreme rains expected due to climate change. Recently, he helped complete one of the largest tunnels in the Middle East that will protect around 40% of a major city from flooding.
