Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Spring 2012 – Present Graduate Research – University of South Florida
Development of a Lead Selenide (PbSe) quantum dot thin film solar device for windows. Lead selenide quantum dot thin films were casted using a novel Laser Assisted Spray (LAS) and other polymers were spin coated to make a device. Concentrations of different polymers were studied to find optimal resistance and transparency.
Advisor : Sarath Witanachchi PhD., University of South Florida, Associate Chair
Recipient, NSF FGLSAMP Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowship
Fall 2010 – Spring 2011 Graduate Research – University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez
Effect of a Proton Exchange membrane polymer coating and the use of metallic catalyst in the electrodes of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell. Studied the use of nickel and palladium powers as catalyst for hydrogen reduction. Collaborated on the building and setup of electrical measurement of devices.
Advisor : Dorial Castellanos PhD., University of Puerto Rico Physics Department Chair
Fall 2008 – Spring 2011 Teaching Assistant – University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez
Served as teaching assistant for 4 different undergraduate level courses (General Physics 1, General Physics 2, General Physics 1 for biologist and Intermediate Lab for physics majors.) Prepared lectures, graded papers and prepared a final test for each course. Coordinated the General Physics Lab 2 course, and prepared the other instructors in weekly meetings.
