In 2004, I obtained a Professorship at the Department of Physics in the Northeastern National University where I lead the Atmospheric Science Research Group.
In 2008, I took a sabatical (9/2008-9/2009) to visit the Department of Physics University of Toronto where I collaborated with T. Shepherd and S. Polavarapu.
Previously, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow from 2001 to 2004 at the Department of Meteorology, The University of Reading (UK) where I worked with J. Thuburn.
I obtained my PhD in Physics (2001), supervised by G. Caranti at FaMAF, National University of Cordoba (Argentina) at the Atmospheric Physics Group.
