BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

Christian R. Orozco is an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of the Philippines Diliman. He is currently the Director of the Office of Field Activities Diliman, Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. He obtained his BSc in Civil Engineering with honors and MSc in Environmental Engineering degrees from the same university. He is a licensed civil engineer in the Philippines and holds certification from the American Concrete Institute. He is a member of the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers, National Secretary and Director of the American Concrete Institute Philippines Chapter and is a US International Exchange Alumni. His research interests and field of expertise include water quality monitoring and modeling, environmental impact assessment, water and wastewater treatment and management, and sustainable technologies in engineered systems. Among his international trainings include solid waste management and landfill design in the University of Malaya, seismic design of structures by the National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering in Taipei Taiwan and water treatment processes and plants in UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in Delft, The Netherlands. He was also trained as a trainer for Integrated Water Resource Management Tools by UNESCO-IHE and Deltares. In July 2015, he was a JICA AUN/Seed-Net visiting foreign researcher in Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan.

As an educator, researcher, engineer and a passionate environmental advocate, Christian’s ultimate goal is to make an influence in the society through high impact researches. In recognition of this advocacy and dedication, Christian was selected  by the US Embassy in Manila to be a leader-mentor in the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative Generation Earth Workshop 2015 in Cambodia to mentor a group of young ASEAN leaders in solving a regional environmental issue. He has been involved in several government and industry-funded research projects related to water quality monitoring/modeling, structural integrity assessment of reinforced concrete buildings, road applications of cement, sustainable construction materials and solid waste management, among others. In 2015, his expertise in wastewater management is tapped by the UP System by appointing him as one of the members of the team of experts that designed the masterplan of the new UP Tacloban in Sta. Elena. In 2013 he was awarded the Limcaoco Young Instructor Award for Teaching Excellence for exemplary teaching performance. Aside from this, Christian has been a recipient of various awards and grants, both local and international. Christian has a wide international experience. He is a member of the organizing committee of the 7th ASEAN Environmental Engineering Conference and the EBA Philippines Fieldwork 2014 for Environmental Issues. He has attended trainings and presented in various academic and professional conferences in Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, Japan, Turkey, The Netherlands and the United States. He is a mentor to several undergraduate student researches and student organizations.
