EXPERTISE

Ethnobotany and Plant Physiology.
I have also been involved in several education projects and research to improve the conceptual understanding of students in Science.
At present I am in the process of completing a book that I began to write during my sabbatical leave last year. This book is being piloted by a professor in the UPR-Mayagez with 10 students and by me with 18 students in UPR-Ro Piedras. The book will be used in the Ethnobotany course that I teach at the Unversity.
