Studies in Chemistry: MSc in Chemistry (Licenciada), University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1991.
PhD in Chemistry, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1999. (Physical Chemistry Environmental Chemistry).
Postdoc: Photochemistry Group. Facultad de Cs Exactas. Universidad de Buenos 2002-2006
Teaching Positions: Senior Assistant of Physical Chemistry Analytical Chemistry, General and Inorganic Chemistry, University of Buenos Aires (since 1988).
Position at CONICET: Investigador Adjunto.
Topics of interest: Photophysics of rare earths. We are interested in the use of lanthanides for the synthesis of new luminescent materials with sensing properties. We are now focusing on the synthesis of lanthanides based up-conversion materials in the meso and nano scale.
