Studies in Chemistry: MSc in Chemistry (Licenciado), University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1985.
PhD in Chemistry, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1991.
Postdoc: University of Texas at Austin (1991-1992). Concordia University (Montreal, Canada), 1992-1995.
Teaching Positions: Associate Professor, University of Buenos Aires.
Position at CONICET: Principal Investigator.
Topics of interest: Electroanalysis, nanotechnology. Our research project focuses on the development of sensors and integrated chemical systems for easy and fast determination of analytes of clinical and environmental relevance. We use as detection methods amperometry, luminescence, and impedance. Enzymes and receptors are used as recognition elements to achieve specificity in these assays.
Awards and Recognitions:

1997 Fundación Antorchas, reentry grant.
2010- Expositor at Fresenius Inventor´s Fair (Medica 2010, Dusseldorf, Germany)AA
