As Technical and Academic Chief of the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory at the Institute of Chemistry, UNAM, he carried out activities related to preventive and corrective maintenance of the 7 NMR equipment available to the Institute. Also the determination of the spectroscopic analysis of different nuclei in mono- and and two-dimensional versions for institute researchers and other academic units and the industry. His main duty is not limited to the acquisition of spectra, but also advice on the interpretation, education and training of students in Master's and Doctoral studies.
