“People often don't like when I challenge my own answers, but internal debate is a necessary path to the better solution.“
Alberto advises on optimization of operation and energy performance of greenhouses and CEA facilities. He worked for the University of Costa Rica in the topic of greenhouse climate control. Moving to Europe allowed him to obtain hands-on experience in the operation, design and construction of vertical farms. Alberto collaborated with the German Aerospace Center in a plant selection methodology for the ISS and worked with the EDEN team on a vertical farming system analysis. He holds a MSc. in Biosystems Engineering of Wageningen University where he focused his research on greenhouse humidity control methods.
