  • Conceptual, Empirical and Practical use of know-how, by linking research to project development. More than fifty projects developed starting in 1990.
  • Quantitative and Qualitative data management, using updated versions of software such as; SPSS, GIS, AutoCAD Map through the whole cycle of project management (planning, design, implementation and control and monitoring). I have used from econometric modeling, conceptual mapping, up to ethnographic surveys and prioritize infographic synthesis for report presentation.
  • Multi-Stakeholders networking including local government officials, NGO staff, private business owners, international development agencies, and civil society leaders. Communication tools and negotiation skills used to reach agreements in a cost-effective way. Some projects included interacting with more than a hundred people both at meeting rooms and on the field and using english and spanish on my own and translation services from/to other languages as Polish and Russian.
  • Partnership development embracing scientific know-how, a legal binding framework, funding support, empowerment of local community for project management and ownership and fostering political commitment. Broad understanding of each of these domains for a comprehensive approach.
  • Global scope of tasks including both developed and developing countries (Peru, Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, South Africa, Canada, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Poland) starting in 1986
  • Engagement of local community within the whole cycle of project management. Groups whom I have interacted with include indigenous people, women and local community leaders.
  • Sensitiveness for technical assistance within fragile contexts, and according to standard operating protocols. Some scenarios I have worked at include; Post-earthquake in Mexico (1985), Post-earthquake in Peru (2007), Post-earthquake and Tsunami in Chile (2010).
  • Budget Management and fundraising amongst international development agencies such as; CDKN, Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation, COSUDE, HOPE Worldwide. Funding goes from 10,000-100,000 US.
  • Passion for adventures in challenging scenarios. I am looking forward to meet people and places either in Asia, Africa and Oceania, although I have more experience in America and Europe.
