  • Spatially-structured human mortality modelling using air pollutants with a compositional approach 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier, 2022-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The human mortality models with a demographic approach are performed in function of time. The addition of information (social, economic, and environmental) in the structure of demographic models allows fitting observed ...
  • A new measure of hygiene inequality applied to urban-rural comparison 

    Quispe Coica, Filimon Alejandro; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2022-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Access to hygiene services remains one of the most urgent challenges facing countries, especially low-income ones. This has become much more critical in the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The WHO/UNICEF Joint ...
  • Compositional spatio-temporal PM2.5 modelling in wildfires 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2021-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Wildfires are natural ecological processes that generate high levels of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) that are dispersed into the atmosphere. PM2.5 could be a potential health problem due to its size. Having adequate ...
  • Water quality, social context and hygiene in high-Andean rural communities in Huancavelica (Peru) 

    Fernández, Sonia; Vinardell Magre, Laura; Àlvarez, Claudia; Acharte Lume, Luz; Quispe Coica, Filimon Alejandro; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. Servizo de Publicacións e Intercambio Científico, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En Perú un 50.35% (Año 2017) de la población total dispone de acceso a agua para el consumo humano gestionada de forma segura, mientras que, en el sector rural, este indicador llega solo al 20.75% (JMP, 2019). Por otro ...
  • Asociación de la mortalidad humana con factores atmosféricos a diferentes escalas geográficas 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Asociación Interamericana de Ingeniería Sanitaria y Ambiental (AIDIS), 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Human mortality data is often modeled using a demographic approach. This approach does not present an adequate fit model for the number of deaths with great variability. For this reason, additional social, economic and ...
  • Desigualdades de acceso al agua y al saneamiento según quintiles de riqueza: un análisis de tendencias en datos compositivos 

    Quispe Coica, Filimon Alejandro; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Universidad Católica de Manizales, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Las desigualdades del acceso de la población a niveles de servicio de agua y saneamiento, han sido muy discutidas en la literatura. Los niveles de servicio con los cuales se generan las tendencias temporales suman 100%, ...
  • Modelling hourly spatio-temporal PM2.5 concentration in wildfire scenarios using dynamic linear models 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2020-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter < 2.5 μm (PM2.5) is one of the main pollutants generated in wildfire events with negative impacts on human health. In research involving wildfires and air quality, it is common ...
  • Influence of atmospheric parameters on human mortality data at different geographical levels 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier, 2021-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Human mortality data are often modeled using a demographic approach as a function of time. This approach does not present an adequate fit model for the number of deaths with great variability. For this reason, additional ...
  • Child mortality levels and trends: a new compositional approach 

    Ezbakhe, Fatine; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2020-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Background: Trend analysis of child mortality is vital to evaluate countries’ progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal on health (SDG 3). However, strictly speaking, child mortality data are probabilities, ...
  • Decision analysis for sustainable development: the case of renewable energy planning under uncertainty 

    Ezbakhe, Fatine; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier, 2021-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) methods are increasingly used to aid decision-making for sustainable development. However, although uncertainty is present in all decision environments, dealing with incomplete and ...
  • A techno-economic optimization model of a biomass-based CCHP/heat pump system under evolving climate conditions 

    Wegener, Moritz; Malmquist, Anders; Isalgué Buxeda, Antonio; Martin, Andrew; Arranz Piera, Pol; Camara Moreno, Osar; Velo García, Enrique (Elsevier, 2020-08-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An innovative modelling approach for the design of biomass-based, solar-assisted combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) and heat pump (HP) systems for various climate scenarios is proposed in this work. The modelling ...
  • Spatio-temporal air pollution modelling using a compositional approach 

    Sánchez Balseca, Joseph; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier Ltd, 2020-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Air pollutant data are compositional in character because they describe quantitatively the parts of a whole (atmospheric composition). However, it is common to use air pollutant concentrations in statistical models without ...
