Professor of Chemistry involved in the teaching of Physical Chemistry and Solid State Chemistry. My research area is Crystallography, supramolecular chemistry, hydrogen bonding, polymorphism in pharmaceuticals. I am also very interested in chemists who are involved in art (music, poetry, literature) and in the use of chemistry tools for the analysis of art objects, for authentication and restoration. Symmetry and art is one of my major interests.

We have established a committee to carry out several activities during next year. Seminars, courses, workshops, as well as cultural activities. They will be posted in the IYC site soon.
