COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION
DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY MANILA
Philippine Higher Education Research Network Sustainability Studies Program
In cooperation with
Philippine Institute of Industrial Engineers
Call for participants for special tutorial session on Input-Output Models for
Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation
De La Salle University’s CHED Philippine Higher Education Research Network (PHERNet)
Sustainability Studies Program will hold a special tutorial session entitled Input-Output
Models for Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation on August 5,
2015 at the Marriot Hotel, Pasay City, Philippines, organized jointly with the 23rd
International Conference for Production Research.
This workshop will provide a venue for discussing current problems on disaster risk and
climate change as it affects the economy. An array of tools for analysis such as input-output
modeling, optimization and decision analysis techniques will be introduced to the
participants.
Financial support in the form of hotel accommodation and transportation cost will be
available to a limited number of local regional applicants. Interested researchers and
graduate students are encouraged to submit the following requirements no later than June
30, 2015 (5 pm) by email to [email protected] with “ICPR SPECIAL
SESSION APPLICATION” as the subject.

About the speakers
Kathleen B. Aviso is an Associate Professor in the Chemical Engineering Department of De
La Salle University, Manila, Philippines. Her research interest is in the development of
decision support tools for environmental decision-making which have been applied for ecoindustrial parks and low-carbon energy systems to name a few. She received her BS in
Chemical Engineering (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines-Diliman in 2000
and her MS in Environmental Engineering and Management (with high distinction and the
outstanding thesis award) from De La Salle University in 2006. She also received her Ph.D. degree in Industrial
Engineering at De La Salle University in 2010. She was awarded the Paterno and Natividad Bacani Professorial
Chair in Chemical Engineering in 2013 from the Gokongwei College of Engineering at De La Salle University.
She was also recognized as one of the Outstanding Young Scientists of 2013 by the Philippine National
Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) and the winner of the 2010 NAST Talent Search for Young
Scientists for her Ph.D. work on the development of mathematical models for efficient water use in ecoindustrial parks. In 2008, she received the Outstanding Scientific Paper Award from NAST for work done on
decision analysis tools in life cycle assessment as part of her master’s thesis. She now has 27 Scopus-listed
publications with an h-index of 12.
Michael Angelo B. Promentilla is a Full Professor of Chemical Engineering at De La Salle
University (DLSU). His research interests vary from a wide spectrum of application of
decision modeling and risk analysis to environmental and energy systems, as well as, to the
design and characterization of sustainable engineering materials. Dr. Promentilla received
his BS in chemical engineering (cum laude) and MS in chemical engineering from University
of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) and Diliman (UPD), respectively. He received his
doctorate degree in socio-environmental engineering with a Monbukagakusho scholarship from Hokkaido
University, Japan. He was also awarded for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship and research grant at Hokkaido
University by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) to conduct study on the application of X-ray
microtomography to characterize the microstructure of cement-based materials. Results of his research
activities and accomplishments are published in peer-reviewed and ISI-listed journals, and are also presented
in both local and international conferences, workshops, and symposia. He currently has more than 15
publications in Scopus with an h-index of 6. His recent work has also been recognized as being among the most
highly cited papers in Cement and Concrete Research (Elsevier). He was also recognized as one of the
Outstanding Young Scientists of 2013 in the field of socio-environmental engineering by the Philippine
National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). He is also the recipient of multiple scientific awards from
the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Japan Concrete Institute (JCI)
Krista Danielle S. Yu is an associate professor at the School of Economics in De La Salle
University (DLSU), Manila, Philippines. Her main areas of research are input-output
modelling, computable general equilibrium analysis and disaster risk analysis. She received
her Ph.D. in Economics from De La Salle University. She has also served as a visiting
researcher at The George Washington University (GWU), Washington D.C., U.S.A. She has
published several ISI-indexed journals.Currently, she is chairing a research program
workshop that promotes an interdisciplinary approach towards for quantitative modeling of disaster risk
management. She is also involved with research work on behavioural analysis of consumers for transport
applications.
