Still in his early forties, Prof. Cordero has already earned two doctoral degrees (in engineering and in sciences) and published more than 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts. He has led more than a dozen of mid-size research projects and collaborated as associate researchers in tens others. Prof. Cordero has a considerable experience in atmospheric topics such as UV climatology, ground-based radiation measurements, quality assurance of solar radiation measurements, and remote sensing.Furthermore, Prof. Cordero has successfully cooperated with international research groups, generating tens of publications and training a significant numbers of students and young researchers. He has been involved in large-scale international research projects; for example as an Associate Scientist in the Component 4 (UV Radiation) of the European-funded SCOUT-O3 Project. Since 2010 he leads the Antarctic Team Research Project (“Anillo”) “Surface Spectral UV Radiation and UV-Linked Effects on Endemic Species” (funded by CONICYT, Grant ACT-98).  His work has been internationally acknowledged; he was invited to be a co-author of the chapter 2 in the WMO/UNEP Ozone Assessment 2010, reporting on the progress of the implementation of the Montreal Protocol.
