Jorge Gironás

Investigador Principal
Línea Recursos Críticos

Profesor Asociado  y Director del Departamento de Ingeniería Hidráulica y Ambiental de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.


Ingeniero Civil y Magíster en Ciencias de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. PhD en Ingeniería Civil, Colorado State University, EE.UU.



Es especialista en hidrología superficial y la simulación de procesos hidrológicos, particularmente en áreas urbanas y semiurbanas. Sus investigaciones se centran en la relación entre sistemas antrópicos y el agua, entendida ésta tanto como un recurso o como una amenaza.
