Luis Díaz Robles

Experto en gestión de la calidad del aire y control de la contaminación atmosférica. Su línea de investigación incluye evaluación y modelación de la calidad del aire y cambio climático, caracterizando y evaluando el impacto y riesgo en la salud humana en base al análisis de diferentes escenarios de emisiones ficticias y futuras, incluyendo cambio de tecnologías, normativas y combustibles, especialmente biocombustibles generados por el proceso de carbonización hidrotérmica de biomasa. Su investigación le ha permitido ser reconocido a nivel internacional, destacando su activa participación en el comité editorial del Consejo Técnico de Química Atmosférica de la A&WMA, donde presidió dicho Consejo Técnico desde el 2009-2012 y es miembro del Consejo Editor del Critical Review del Journal de la A&WMA. Recientemente, ha sido invitado a participar en el Consejo Editor del Waste to Energy Research & Technology Counsil.
