about me...

Creative, articulate and self-motivated professional, in regular exchange between the multiple scenarios of agronomy and scientific-technological experimentation.
Agronomist, plant physiologist and geneticist. I have been working for 10 years in research within agricultural and environmental fields, with emphasis on plant mineral nutrition and homeostasis, especially in the elaboration of sustainable strategies involving nitrogen metabolism and symbiotic interactions between microorganisms and plants of agronomic interest.
Also, I have two years of complementary experience in the corporate field, particularly in the execution of marketing activities and product stewardship, as well as agronomic consultancy. Additionally to this, I have two years of teaching experience in agronomy and related areas (technical courses and college).
The combination of the performed activities have provided relevant personal and professional development, allowing a systemic consideration of agriculture in terms of market demands and it's still unexplored potential. Moreover, it was crucial in furthering my transferable skill set and improving it in this exciting sector.
As a career goal, my aspiration is a challenging role, which allows me to improve my knowledge and skills, as well as a gradual increase of responsibility in an innovative and collaborative environment.
