I’m Technician in Pathology and Cytology since 2005 and I have worked in marine research since 2006 as lab assistance.
I have developed my work at the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Santiago, from 2006 to 2010 doing analysis of shellfish poisons in fresh samples of bivalve molluscs, preserved food and feeds by the techniques of mouse bioassay and HPLC.
