Daniela Flor
More than 10 years of professional experience working in issues related to environmental management, water resources, climate change and research in both the public and private sectors. In the area of sustainability, I have constructed policies, strategies, and environmental key performance indicators related to Circular Economy, Climate Change and Water Management. Currently I am a professor at USFQ (University San Francisco de Quito) in Mass and Energy Balance, Capstone Project and Fluid Mechanics courses. I have participated in an International Capstone Project with the University of South Alabama, supervising a project. I have experience in research that involves working with multiple stakeholders (such as Government, NGOs, private sector, communities) and modelling social and technical variables using a systems dynamics approach. I am a partner of a consulting firm for 8 years working in the quantification of emissions and removals of GHG in natural ecosystems such as wetlands and also many different industries such as airports, food, banks, among others. Also, I coordinated a research for the quantification of microplastics in rivers, oceans and food in Ecuador.

One of my latest relevant work experiences, is the construction of the Ecuador Carbon Cero Mechanism. This was a project funded by UNDP and GIZ, and I also worked with REDD+, the National Ministry of Environment and Water, FIAS (private fund), NGOs and other relevant stakeholders. This mechanism focuses on engaging the private and public sector, to implement strategies that promote the reduction and removal of GHG emissions through conservation and restauration initiatives. This project involved: policy analysis, NDC reporting analysis, construction of the mechanism, validation of the mechanism with the stakeholders and articulation of the mechanism with the different strategies in the region.
Nallapaneni Manoj Kumar
Nallapaneni Manoj Kumar is an interdisciplinary energy and sustainability engineer with a PhD in Energy and Environment (Digital Circular Economy), City University of Hong Kong. He has done two Masters, one in Renewable Energy Technologies from Karunya University and the other in Environmental Economics from Annamalai University. His doctoral dissertation was focused on blockchain, smart contracts and internet of things facilitated sustainable and resilient circular business models for electric vehicle (EVs), e-waste (solar and batteries), co-production of grapes and solar, and industrial symbiosis. Before joining the School of Energy and Environment, Nallapaneni worked as a Research Fellow at the Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Malaysia on the project focused on using solar photovoltaics as urban and rural infrastructure. Earlier to this he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, at Bharat Institute of Engineering and Technology affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad.

Dr. Nallapaneni's studies mainly focus on sustainable and resilient built environment with an emphasis on circular business models and emerging technologies across critical infrastructure sectors. He has worked on key sustainability challenges that include energy systems modelling and analysis, waste valorization and material passports, carbon accounting and pricing. He possesses an interdisciplinary skillset that includes performance analytics, techno-economics, life cycle assessment and nexus systems design, especially for the food-energy-water-waste nexus. His research works are real-time empirical and location or climate-specific studies.

Dr. Nallapaneni is an active member of the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) organizations and one of the founding directors of "SusSo (Sustainable Solutions) Foundation Cares", a Non-Profit Organization for uplifting public health in India and "Afro Intergreen Energy Limited", a private limited startup for digitalizing Africa's power sector.
