Teaching

Since 2019 I am examiner and external lecturer of the Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS), Göttingen, Germany.

I have academic experience in teaching and supervising undergraduate and graduate students in physics and engineering fields. As a teacher I want to support my students in developing critical and analytical skills to tackle scientific problems.

Some courses developed:

◉ Lectures on “Origins of solar systems” in the winter semester WS 2015/2016 at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Faculty of Physics. Master Students of Astromundo.  The lectures were given in modules and co-teached with Prof. Klaus Jockers and Dr. Harald  Krüger.

◉ Lecture at the IMPRS at MPS on Planetary Atmospheres, for PhD students in the international PhD program at MPS. 2010  (co-teach with Dr. Dmitry Titov).

◉ Lectures at the Herschel online data processing workshop “Exploiting the Herschel Science Archive for newcomers”, 2016. They are a mixture of tutorials and short demos in the format of presentations that were broadcast live. ESAC. Lectures and videos are available in: http://herschel.esac.esa.int/twiki/bin/view/Public/ArchivalWorkshop2016

◉ Lectures at the Herschel online data processing workshop for newcomers 2015. The workshop was targeted at an audience of novice users interested in accessing and interpreting Herschel data for the first time. ESAC. They are a mixture of tutorials and short demos in the format of presentations that were broadcast live.  Lectures and videos are available in: http://herschel.esac.esa.int/twiki/bin/view/Public/DataProcessingWorkshop2015

◉ I developed the educational material and experiments, the concepts and lead the educational and outreach activities of the itinerant exhibition in non-formal education : “The Universe: Our Immense Home”, exhibited at the Humboldt Planetarium, Caracas, Venezuela. CENAMEC Foundation. 1997.

◉ As a teaching assistant/instructor to basic and advanced physics labs at the Simón Bolívar University (1994-1995), I was assisting physics students to perform experiments and help to form the ability to discover new things by themselves, and assisting to the professors to evaluate the quizzes, reports and oral examinations. 

During my physics graduate training at the Simón Bolívar University, I was also fortunate enough to have served as a teaching assistant to basic and advanced physics labs, and after the completion of the studies, I worked as a Physics Teacher for Research and Development at the CENAMEC foundation. In the past I have also been a private instructor/tutor on physics, mathematics and Spanish to students (aged 15 - 40) to meet academic, intellectual and social needs.
