Professor Clausen has a Master's Degree in Hydrogeology and Applied Geology from the University of Tübingen in Germany and a Bachelor's Degree in Geological Sciences from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has specializations in sustainable development and has completed over 30 certification and specialization courses on impact assessment, water resources and environmental management.
He has over 25 years of international experience as an advisor and consultant in the nexus of water-territory-energy in the Anthropocene. His field of expertise is ecosystemic services as they relate to water, well-being and human health. His direct experience includes studies of the interaction between underground water and riverine or coastal geomorphology, the protection of riverbeds, geoarcheology in Patagonia, characterization of contaminated sites, environmental auditing and the remediation of deteriorated soils and underground water in the United States, Germany, Mexico and South America.
He is a LEAD Fellow and the former director of the International Association of Impact Assessment, a leading auditor for ISO 14000 by ERM CVS and an expert in the water network of the DAAD (Deutsche Academische Austauschdienst). He has been a keynote speaker, presenter and delegate at deliberation forums on water management, impact assessment and sustainability in California, Texas, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, South Korea, Chile, Spain, India, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Senegal and Switzerland.
At ITESO, he designed and coordinated the Undergraduate Program in Environmental Engineering and currently works as a teacher and researcher in the Department of Technological and Industrial Processes. He has represented ITESO on the Academic Water Council and the Advisory Council of the SEMADET of Jalisco, and maintains close connections with opinion leaders and decision-makers.
He has participated in many projects related to hydrogeological research and the characterization of environmentally degraded sites. He has led groups working on the design of underground water monitoring plans, injection project tracking, environmental risk analysis reports, remediation of polluted sites, geological risk zoning, and assessment of the environmental impact of complex programs.
He has directed over 20 applied research projects for the regulation, mitigation or remediation of degraded water-related ecosystemic services and sites that pose health risks. He has been a guest professor and coordinated numerous complex projects on dams and water resources at the University of Guadalajara (UdeG).
