Prof. Roberto San Jose
Technical University of Madrid (UPM), Madrid, Spain
Roberto San Jose is a Professor of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). He studied Physics in the University of Valladolid (Spain) and made the Ph. D. in 1983 on relation to Atmospheric Boundary Layer. He became associated professor in University of Valladolid in 1986. He was on leave in the Max-Planck Institute of Meteorology in Hamburg (Germany) in 1989-1990 and He was a guest senior scientist in the IBM-Bergen Environmental Sciences and Solutions Center in Bergen (Norway) in 1990-1992. In 1992 he moved to the Computer Science School of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) in Madrid (Spain). In 2001 he became head professor of the UPM. In 1992 He started a laboratory in UPM called Environmental Software and Modelling Group. Up to now, Prof. San Jose has been principal investigator in more than 200 projects related with Air Quality and Climate issues. The projects were down with private and public companies and also with European Union. More than 20 EU projects on the environmental area and Information Technology have been carried out.
