I'm chemist and I work on the analytical chemistry research field. I also teach at the University of Cuyo.

I'm interesting on developing novel and efficient and environmentally friendly analytical techniques for determining persistent organic pollutants in samples of environmental and biological interest. This interest for exploring and diving into the analytical chemistry is transmitted to my pupils at the classes and to my Ph.D. students at the lab, as well as friends and family.

My specific interest on IYC2011 is to support the celebration and growing of this great area of the science.
