About:

I am a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I am Professor at the Exact and Natural Sciences School of the University of Buenos Aires having two fields of interest in research activities: one is synthesis of organic molecules, and the other is research in Chemical Education. In both fields I am Director of PhD Thesis.

Besides, I am the President of the Chemical Education Division of the Argentine Chemical Society since 2005.

My interest is to be involved in IYC 2011, as well as to propose activities to be held in Argentina for Spanish speaking audience.
