Food Engineer from the Salle University of Colombia, Master in Quality and Integral Management from the Santo Tomás de Aquino University of Bogotá, Colombia. I have carried out research in evaluation and bromatological analysis of agri-food raw materials, process engineering; Especially in the development of food drying methods and their evaluation in the thermal efficiency of said processes. Also in integrated management systems applied to the educational sector. Additionally, I have been advancing projects on issues related to food safety and the application of quality management models and integrated systems. I have been teaching classes at public and private universities for 18 years, serving as coordinator of the Food Engineering program and Quality Coordinator. In addition, I have carried out consultancies and projects in the agro-industrial area in parallel.

Research Experience (specific topics):

  • Evaluation and bromatological analysis of agro-alimentary raw materials.
  • Process engineering.
  • Integrated quality management systems.
