PhD in Plant Science: University of Connecticut 2019. Research focused on how water quality leads to clogging of irrigation systems and how biofilms accumulate inside pipes and affect plant growth and health. Main focus was on ornamental and hydroponic crops grown in greenhouses. 

Soil Science Instructor: Zamorano University 2013 to 2014. I taught students about doing soil surveys, soil fertility and conservation. I prepared soil management recommendations and fertility programs for growers who got their soils tested. 

Research Scholar: Ohio State University 2010 to 2012. Research focused on improving organic spelt protein content and baking quality through organic soil amendments. 

Bachelor degree in Agricultural Science and Production: Zamorano University 2009.
