María Eugenia Cruz

Master´s degree in Nanoscience, Materials and Processes: Chemical Technology at the Frontier, URV, Tarragona, Spain. (2018- In progress)

Chemical Engineer, Universidad Tecnologica Nacional, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2015)

Training Contract in the Ceramic and Glass Institute (ICV-CSIC) of Madrid.

From 2011 to 2016, I worked for five years as raw materials and composition responsible in the glass industry, where I have been prepared to continue the career in the glass area of the geological service in Argentina, where I worked from 2016 to 2018.

I have also worked as a teacher in the Universidad Technological Nacional for three year in the area of ceramic materials.
