About Me
PhD geology student. My main PhD topic is related to the degasssing mechanisms characterization of Deception Island volcano (Antarctica) through Noble gas and Stable Isotope (H and O) geochemistry.

I am a very hardworking person, always motivated and looking forward to opportunities as they arise. My strengths are punctuality, persistence and ethical standards.

Voluntary Field Training

Universidad de Salamanca

July 2017
Voluntary training in the field of metamorphic petrology in the south-east of Salamanca province (Map Sheet MAGNA 1.50000 Nº529), especially in the vicinities of Bercimuelle, Puente del Congosto, Gallegos de Solmirón and El Mirón. This training was realised in rocks that belong to the Esquisto-Grauvaquico Complex, dated Pre-Ordovicien, who suffered metamorphic procceses associated to Variscan Orogeny and Pre, Sin or Post-Variscan igneous intrusions.
