ABRUÑA & MUSGRAVE ARCHITECTS, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Architectural Intern

I completed an internship program in Tropical and Ecological Architecture, LEED building technology and experimentation through form and material exploration for Housing, Comercial and Institutional Building Design. My tasks involved:

- Design of precast concrete structures
- Construction Document Preparation
- Supervision of construction work
- Research of new materials for Architecture
- Assisting to meeting with engineers and consultants
- Documentation of facilities

Aug 2011 - Dec 2011

University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, US, Chemist (Undergraduate Researcher)

Under the supervision of Dr. Savorotko and Dr. Sylvia Thomas I developed metal organic macromolecules using crystal engineering techniques for material development to find possible applications such as hydrogen storage and catalysis for complex molecule synthesis, which included:

- Analysis of Material Properties
- Preparation of Reaction Mixture
- Study the engineered crystals under microscope
- Prepare samples for X-ray Crystallography

May 2007 - Aug 2007

University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, PR, US, Chemist (Undergraduate Researcher)

This experience consisted of becoming part of Dr. José Cortés’ research team developing organometallic complexes with fullerene compounds as raw materials to measure the kinetics of its reactions and establish physicochemical laws that govern its behavior to establish further applications and material engineering and development. As part of the research team my role consisted of:

- Analysis of Material Properties
- Preparation of Reaction Mixture
- Study the reaction through spectrometry
- Data Analysis and elaboration of conclusions

Aug 2006 - May 2007
