Andres Virguez Rodriguez
After graduating with high distinction from a Master in Science in Environmental Engineering, a Bachelor in Science in Chemical Engineering and a Bachelor in Science in Environmental Engineering (double major) from Universidad de los Andes (Top Ranked Latin American University – 5th according to THE; 8th according to QS), I worked with several institutions (e.g., Colombian Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank) promoting the adoption of cleaner fuels in transport and industry throughout Latin America.
During my professional experience, I had lead life cycle assessment studies, performed cost-benefit analysis of the integration of new fuels to energy markets, developed risk assessments of exposure to air pollutants and designed mitigation strategies for environmental issues. By setting ambitious personal and professional goals, I had been able to develop transferable skills that allow me to compose oral and written communications, adapt to multicultural environments, administer academic processes and coordinate the execution of multiple tasks.
