I had secondary school chemistry teacher for more than 25 years and now I am university teacher, I teach chemistry and biochemistry in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. University of Barcelona. At the same time, I am the president of education section from the Catalan Board of Chemists.

My specific interest is showed in the four before but I think that "Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry" will be a good sumarize.
