Curriculum Vitae

My basic and high school education took place at Bennett School in Cali-Colombia, where I obtained my bilingual (Spanish-English) bachelor degree in 1992. My professional degree as Biologist-Zoologist was obtained at Universidad del Valle, Cali-Colombia in 1999. In the same University, I obtained my Master's degree in Basic Medical Sciences on 19-Oct-2007. Besides my academic and research training, I am very skillful dealing with software like Microsoft Office (Including Access), EndNote, Corel Draw, etc. Since 2007, I have been writing and publishing some review articles and helping other researchers to publish their work as well. As part of my Portfolio of Services, I offer help as style, writing, and grammar corrector in Spanish. I also translate texts from English to Spanish & Spanish to English, organize citations and bibliographies with EndNote, transforming documents to publishable material. Now that I am pre-retired, I am starting to teach Biology, Spanish and English online.
