Formación de Capital Humano


Teaching of ‘Air pollution engineering’ course for undergraduate and graduate levels.
Two MSc and three undergraduate theses supervised.
Ongoing supervision of a PhD student is carried out with cooperation from U. Colorado at Boulder.
Member of committees of MSc and PhD students from PUC, U. de Chile and USACh.
A book: “Introduction to Air Pollution Engineering” (with the collaboration of prof. Luis Rizzi) has been drafted and submitted to PUC’s Editorial Committee for approval.


Difusión y Transferencia


Lecturer in 11 training courses on air quality modeling for consultants, students and faculty in Chile, Argentina and Colombia.
Frequently interviewed in the media regarding air pollution issues.
Project leader in two methodological developments for the environmental assessment of public transportation plans: the MODEM and MODEC computer models. MODEM (v5.0) is a computer tool that estimates city-wide, annual transport emissions of air pollutants using as input the outcomes of equilibrium transport models such as ESTRAUS and fully customized choices of emission factors; MODEC (v2.1) extends the results of MODEM to estimate changes in air quality and health effects associated to the implementation of transport initiatives, including source-receptor matrices for several Chilean cities and locally estimated cost-benefit figures. Both models have been used for the Government in several cities.
