Researcher in Philosophy of Science and Theoretical Physics his main area of ​​research is the cognitive approach to the study of the relationship between historicity and objectivity in Science. Ex-Professor of Exclusive Dedication of Simón Bolívar University. Researcher member of the project "Elaboration of cosmological models within the framework of general relativity" of the Simon Bolivar University and research member of the Laboratory of Techniques and Nuclear Applications of the Central University of Venezuela. He has held positions as Chief of General Physics Laboratory at the Central University of Venezuela and Simon Bolivar University. Professor and guest speaker at the faculty of sciences of the Central University of Venezuela and visiting scientist at the Scuola Internazionale di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy (Trieste, Italy). He is currently a research member of the Venezuelan Association for the Advancement of Science -ASOVAC- (Caracas-Venezuela) and the Italian Society of Storia della Fisica e Astronomia-SISFA- (Italy). In addition to his academic activities as a researcher in the philosophy of science, he is currently carrying out initiatives for the incorporation of Venezuelan women academics and scientists abroad, which he has called the "Venezuelan Academic and Scientific Diaspora". Venezuelan scientists recognized internationally as Francisco Kerdell-Vegas (Spain) and Claudio Bifano (ACFIMAN).
