I am a Peruvian Scientist educated in three continents with more than 10 years of experience in conducting and planning multilateral scientific projects. Also, I have a big passion for social development through education, hence, I am the founder and director of the "Ekpapalek project" (, which seeks to promote opportunities for professional development for Latinamerican students. I also advocate for women empowerment as a recently selected "Global Champion for Economic Empowerment" by Empower Women/ UN Women and have recently develop a project to empower women in Peru ( I am looking forward to work with an organization that sees the value of having an employee that is passionate about social development and that has gather a combination of skills that include: PhD skills, entrepreneurial skills (Entrepreneurship model is very similar to the scientific model), leadership skills, good public speaking skills and a broad international experience.
