I am a biologist incorporated to the College of Biologists of Costa Rica, I like genetics, statistics and computers. I have worked in several projects collaborating with the statistical and informatics aspects of the work. I have been working for the university in education and analytical laboratories for more than 10 years.
My experience in laboratory work includes coordinating and executing highly specialized and highly difficult laboratory analyzes, sampling, preparing, preserving, classifying and cataloging various pharmaceutical samples, among others. Since I joined the Inorganic Group My skills now include synthetic inorganic chemical techniques.
Also, I like teaching so the University is the ideal place to work. I have also worked in Private Universities teaching General Biology classes, I am especially interested in gamification techniques.
Currently in the Inorganic group I offer academic and technical support and try to provide an efficient service to all users of our facilities. I especially focus on the students, whether undergraduate and postgraduate (master’s and doctorate).
