Personal information and professional background
Info about yourself and how you came to e-mobility
I am and electrical engineer and always have had love and passion for sustainability and vehicles. During my undergraduate studies I participated in a beautiful project which consisted of building a solar electric vehicle to participate in the Australian world race.
I continued along that path and worked in the private sector in the development of new businesses and the operation of power generation assets. Later, I moved to the Chilean Ministry of Energy, where I oversaw the efficient transportation unit, leading the development of public policies for the promotion of efficient transportation and electromobility in the country. Among other things, we developed the national electromobility strategy, energy efficiency standards for light vehicles, and interoperability regulations.
Finally, the curiosity to do more brought me to Germany and now I am collaborating closely with CharIN and the development of interoperable open standards for charging infrastructure and also, I am part of AVEC’s board of directors, the Chilean Electric Vehicles association.
