Héctor Angarita

Héctor Angarita (he/him) is a Senior Scientist with the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University. His research focuses on the linkages between freshwater ecosystems functions and services, climate variability, and production and demand of water-dependent resources—such as energy and biomass. Héctor received his Ph.D. in Environmental and Rural Studies from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia in 2018.  In his PhD work, he developed cross-scale methods for characterizing regional interdependencies and cumulative impacts between the production and demand of energy and biomass, and basin-scale processes and services of the freshwater system in Colombia. He holds an M.Sc. in Hydrosystems from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Colombia; and a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering from Universidad Nacional de Colombia.
