David Antonio Buentello has a BSc in Environmental Chemical Engineering, a Master of Sciences in Engineering, specialized in Chemical Engineering (Energy), a PhD, obtained in Queen's University Belfast. His expertise is in the area of renewable energy; he has worked with solar receivers and biomass energy, where he has been involved with reactor design, simulation, project factibility analysis and experimentation. His current research is in the areas of (1) applied thermodynamics to analyze energy systems using computational fluid dynamics and process modeling, and (2) innovation in education, particularly the use of technology.
Before working at Tec, he taught courses related to chemical engineering (e.g. thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, reactor engineering) and basic sciences (e.g. differential and vector calculus) in Tecnológico Nacional de México, and worked as the coordinator for the Centro de Investigación en Tecnologías del Ambiente y el Agua (CITAA) in Instituto Tecnológico Superior de Cajeme.
David aims to use his knowledge and experience for continuous personal and professional development, while contributing to society and helping the new generations.
