Formación de Capital Humano


During my work experience, in the hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) development at ALSET as Chief Science Officer, the training of engineers in science and strategic decision making was also part of the work. This kind of training of staff is also very relevant in my opinion.

The same is true for my work at Energy CheX as CEO, the work was that of a start-up. During this time the necessity to create work groups and distribute the different workloads was also part of the training younger engineers and staff need to see and experience first hand. This way they gain insight into how the management of people is not always textbook material, but rather an issue of both textbook and experience.

Teaching has been a permanent parte of my education. From my Undergraduate Studies at PUC Where I taught several experimental physics classes to Engineers , and Students of Physics and Astronomy. During my pre - Ph.D. in KULeuven I had to lecture experimental physics to undergraduate students and Biophysics and also to Master Students.
During the PhD I was the supervisor for two Master thesis student in Physics.
Today I have one undergraduate student at the technical university Santa Maria.


Difusión y Transferencia


Much of my expertise with hydrogen has been used in the hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) development at ALSET. In this project a dual-fuel retrofit kit was developed so that large 2 MW mining trucks can run on both diesel or hydrogen. This project was a 20M USD project, that was partially funded by the government and mainly by private investment.

Has build and patented several devices relating to energy storage and energy generation. One specific patent to mention is the one titled "SYSTEM AND METHOD TO STORE AND GENERATE ENERGY WHERE A PRESSURE IS RELEASED INTO A LIQUID CIRCUIT WHICH IN TURN MOVES A LIQUID TURBINE TO GENERATE POWER".
This is a patent that uses air pressure to move water through a specific circuit to produce electrical energy. This patent is being filed in the US, Europa, Australia and Chile.

Currently Mr. Romero has been able raise enough investment for the technology company Energy CheX SpA so that the implementation of the above patent can be constructed and a first industrial prototype can see the light of day.


Premios y Distinciones

  •   Repatriation of scientist abroad 2012

    Conicyt

    Chile, 2012

    Under the line of insertion into academia, the PAI program awards "help returning" funds to researchers that are currently abroad to come back to Chile and continue their career here.

  •   PhD Grant for the university of Wellington New Zealand

    Conicyt

    Chile, 2005

    National grant to do the PhD abroad (New Zealand). I did NOT use this grant; as I was awarded a better grant from the Flemish Research Council to do my PhD in Leuven, Belgium. Nevertheless it is worth mentioning.
