Dr Pablo Salas, Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellow

Dr Pablo Salas, Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellow

  • Dr Salas is the Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellow in Radical Innovation and Disruption, supported by Paul and Michelle Gilding.
  • Addressing complex global challenges requires capabilities far beyond the reach of a single field of study. It is with this motivation that Pablo became an interdisciplinary scholar. His academic background combines undergraduate studies on electrical engineering, with extensive training in physics, mathematics, computing sciences and dynamic systems and postgraduate studies in economics and land economy. Throughout his career, Pablo has applied the knowledge acquired in his formal education into innovative and impactful projects. From building robots to support education to designing and implementing the first large scale system for automatic detection of wildfires in Chile, Pablo has always embraced complex challenges and tackles them using collaborative interdisciplinary approaches. After working four years in the telecommunications industry in Chile, he decided to come back to academia, where he has been since 2009, first in Germany and now in the UK.
