Employement historyCornell University·USA: 2015-to June 2015. Postdoctoral researcher working on applied genomic selection on Oat Breeding for Nutritional Quality. Cornell University ·USA: 2012-2015. Master graduate student working on optimization of the training population in Genomic selection. Cornell University ·USA: Semester 2014. Teaching assistant of the Crop Improvement lectures at the department of Plant Breeding and Genetics. AAFC·SPARC Centre in Saskatchewan·Canada: 2011-2012. Postdoctoral researcher. Research included the study of effects of plant density on durum crop production.University of Western Ontario·Canada: 2009-2011. Postdoctoral researcher. Scientists in charge of the identification and selection of traits that maximize biomass production as well as enhance the efficiency of biomass conversion by novel processes critical for the viability of biorefineries. Design of primers, sequencing technology and QTL analysis were important part of my research.Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)·Spain: 2007. Research was involved to study the amino acid composition of raw material for animal production by high performance liquid chromatography.University of Buenos Aires. Department of Plant Production· Argentina. 2006. PhD program; focusing on the physiological changes in apical development of durum wheat.Semiarid Prairie Agricultural Research Centre (SPARC): 2005. PhD program; I gained experience on durum wheat breeding which included, genome mapping and quality predictions by NIRs.University of Granada: PhD 2003-2008. Research focused on ecophysiological and molecular impact of the genetic improvement of durum wheat in Mediterranean conditions on yield formation and accumulation of amino acids and Proteins.
