Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Studied Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires (2003). I have worked there for three years in organic syntheses (antitumorals and steroid compounds). Since 2008 I have been working in the NanoMatMicro group where I did my PhD (University of Seville, 2013) on the study of hydrogen generation through sodium borohydride hydrolysis reaction.  Now I am in the same group as a post doc. My research field is the study of catalytic hydrogen generation and combustion reactions from a fundamental point of view as well as for practical applications. Preparation, characterization (specially using Electron Microscopy) and catalyst testing is my day-to-day work which I enjoy very much.
