After obtaining my Ph.D. in Chemistry from Brandeis University
(USA) in 1988, I obtained a position as Professor of Chemistry at Universidad
de Los Andes in Mérida, Venezuela. I have ample experience with writing
scientific documents in English and in Spanish. I have served in many occasions
as translator (sequential and simultaneous) in conferences, courses,
interviews, etc., carried out in our University and in other Universities in
Venezuela and in Latin America. My research area is Solid State Chemistry and
my work centers around Crystallography applied to the study of a variety of
materials such as natural products, inorganic compounds, semiconductors,
organic, organometallic, and pharmaceutical compounds. I have directed
undergraduate and graduate degree theses and most of the work carried out has
been published in specialized journals in English. My teaching responsibilities include
theory and practice in General Chemistry and in Physical Chemistry as well as
advanced courses in Crystallography and Solid State Chemistry. I frequently
teach courses abroad. I am member of Editorial Boards of several prestigious
journals and frequently serve as reviewer for different specialized journals.
Besides Chemistry I am also interested in science education, symmetry in art,
history of science, cultural heritage, theater, and music.

I have very good editorial skills and I am looking into the possibility of doing more translation and editing work when I decide to retire from teaching and research.

I am interested in mid- to long-term projects, particularly in
translating Chemistry, Materials Science, or Pharmaceutical Science textbooks.
However, I am willing to take short-term projects. Hourly or per word rates can
be discussed depending on the project.
