Mr Levi Campos Quiroz

Adjunct Fellow

Sustainable Minerals Institute


Levi is Civil Metallurgical Engineer and MSc in Industrial Engineering. Both studies from Universidad de Concepcion, Chile. When he was finalising his master thesis, he did an internship at the University of Queensland, where he worked at the Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (CWiMI), from the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI). After that, he was hired by the Sustainable Minerals Institute, International Centre of Excellence, Chile (SMI-ICE-Chile), where he works mainly at giving solutions to the water problems associated with the mining industry.

Research Impacts

Levi focus is on the environmental problems due to mining activity, mainly associated with the water resource. He has experience in mathematical models applied to a hydric context, integrated water management, and environmental economics.
