Dr. Antonio David Pozo-Vázquez holds a Ph. D in Atmospheric Science (2000) from University of Granada (Andalusia, Spain) and B.S. in Applied Physics from the same University (1994). He is on the Faculty of the Department of Physics of the University of Jaen since 1998, where he is responsible for courses on meteorology and renewable energy resources and leads the Solar Radiation and Atmosphere Modeling research group. Dr. Pozo-Vazquez is interested in solar radiation forecasting and the evaluation of solar and wind energy resources, including the analysis of the spatial and temporal balancing between solar and wind energy resources at different spatial and temporal scales. He has spent research stays at the University of East Anglia and the European Center of Medium Range Forecasting (U.K.); and at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Colorado, USA) as a Fulbright fellow. He has led several research projects on different aspects of the solar resources evaluation and forecasting and renewable energy integration strategies. He participates in the IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 16 on Solar resource for high penetration and large scale applications  ( He has authored over 70 referred publications and bout 150 conference papers and technical reports.
