Featured Speaker

Speaker: Francisco Dóñez, Ph.D, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Topics: US EPA’s West Coast Collaborative and Clean Diesel Program; funding opportunities inclusive of the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) and examples of funded projects; and emerging technology development and demonstration projects.

Speaker Bio: Francisco Dóñez works in the Air Division at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9, based in the Southern California Field Office in Los Angeles. On temporary assignment to the Air Planning office since fall 2010, his current project is a major review and rulemaking on a state implementation plan for regional haze (visible air pollution in national parks and other protected areas). In a prior role, he was the Ports and Marine Sector Lead for the West Coast Collaborative, a public-private partnership to reduce air pollution from heavy duty diesel engines. He has also focused agency outreach to environmental justice communities affected by diesel pollution, especially in the Inland Empire region. He spent his early career at EPA headquarters in Washington, DC, where he performed economic analysis of environmental regulations, and coordinated climate change policy and research collaborations with the Mexican government. He is highly motivated to improve racial and ethnic diversity in environmental and academic communities, and has led equal opportunity initiatives at EPA and other organizations. Francisco completed his Ph.D. in the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley in 2010. His dissertation examined a controversy over haze pollution in Big Bend National Park in the 1990s as an illustration of the intersections between air pollution science and border environmental politics. A native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, he received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT in 1987, and an M.S. in Public Policy from Georgia Tech in 1996.
