Summary: Have worked in the National Center for Scientific Research, Cuba (1978-1992) where, as laboratory director, department head, researcher and doctoral supervisor, made my research group the world leader in Natural Zeolites Science-&-Technology, obtaining, about five million dollars in research funds. Next, worked at the Institute of Chemical Technology (1993-1996), Valencia, Spain one of the elite research centers in, catalysis, energy storage, molecular dynamics and physical adsorption subsequently, performed my research at Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta, Georgia (1997-1998) then was Lecturer at Barry University, Miami, Florida, USA (1998-1999). Thereafter, was dean-institute director-&-full professor of the School of Science at University of Turabo, Gurabo, PR (1999-2015), where was the most awarded scientist yet, obtaining more than three million dollars in external funds to run projects in: materials science, catalysis, pollution abatement, nanomaterials impedance analysis and electrochemistry. In April 2015 funded my Company named Materials for Art and Science Use, where perform Consulting and Materials Characterization Services. As result, of this activity, published: 130 papers, 6 books, 15 chapters, 16 patents, 43 extended abstracts and have presented 183 oral and poster papers at scientific conferences. As teacher, delivered courses on General-Modern-Statistical-Quantum-&-Solid State Physics, General-&-Physical Chemistry, Materials Characterization Methods, Calculus and Mathematical Methods for Physicists. Finished a BSc in Physics at Havana University (Magna Cum Laude, 1970), a MSc in Surface Physics in the National Center for Scientific Research, Cuba-Dresden University of Technology, Germany (Summa Cum Laude, 1972), and a PhD in Solid State Physics at the National University for Science and Technology (Summa Cum Laude, 1978). Moreover, completed postdoctoral stints at the Dresden University of Technology (1978) Moscow State University (1982), Institutes of Physical Chemistry and Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences (1983), and Central Institute for Chemistry Hungarian Academy of Science (1984), with first class scientists. The journal "Materials Today" in a note published in March 20, 2010, recognized that I was one of the creators, or the creator, of a new field in Materials Science, namely: energy and pollution abatement uses of materials, as described in my books "Electrochemistry, Lambert Academic Publishers, Germany, 2017 and "Physical Chemistry of Materials, CRC Press, 2009. Similarly, the journal "Chromatographia 66, (7/8) (2007)" acknowledged my contribution to Statistical Physics as explained in my book "Adsorption and Diffusion in Nanoporous Materials", CRC Press, 2007. I'm currently American citizen.
