A THOMASIAN has been appointed as the new deputy executive director of the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST – PCIEERD).

Niñaliza Escorial, a chemical engineering alumna, will oversee the operations of the country’s innovation council.

“With so many things happening right now—new technologies coming in, the pandemic coming in—and there are many tools that could be used, […] it should all be integrated strategically in such a way that your human resources could respond to anything,” she told the Varsitarian.

Escorial is one of the council’s longest-serving employees, having led its Industrial Technology Development division since 2003 prior to her appointment.

She was involved in the conceptualization of DOST projects like One Lab, Food Innovation Center, Smart Food Value Chain, and packaging and metrology research.

Escorial obtained her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at UST in 1987 and finished her master’s degree in chemical engineering at De La Salle University in 1993. Adrian L. Parungao
