Dr. Alexander Los is a climatologist and expert in urban air pollution and heat extremes. He focuses his research on sustainable urban transition processes to mitigate climate change, related to air pollutant and greenhouse gas emission reduction and energy transition. Dr. Los coordinates the Urban Environment, Sustainability and Climate Change Master track of the Urban Management and Development MSc programme and teaches topics such as climate change, microclimate extremes, air pollution, and energy transition.

Besides teaching, Alexander participates in research projects funded by ICLEI,, BOLD Cities and the Convergence Programme to support communities in their effort to understand air pollution urgencies and to make the energy transition process more inclusive. Alexander’s experience in climate change, air quality and remote-sensing is built on a consequent combination of modelling and field work to study atmospheric photochemistry, effects of clouds on the Earth’s climate and solar resource forecasting.

Alexander obtained his PhD at the University of Utrecht in 2001. He worked as a post-doc researcher at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and as a research associate at the University of Technology Delft, The Netherlands. As managing director and senior scientist in private companies, he developed scientific instruments for climate research and solar energy.
