â¢ Mentoring and advising research assistants in the project âOptimisation of Multi-scale Structures with Applications to Morphing Aircraftâ, under the supervision of Prof. Friswell at Swansea University. â¢ Managing students groups in Chile: I have had the opportunity to work with undergraduate students, guiding them to carry out their final research project at the end of the engineering course. Additionally, I have taught in Chilean universities and education institutions. â¢ Managing students groups in the U.K: I worked as a demonstrator in the Civil Engineering Department, in Swansea University, From September 2007 to July 2009. â¢ Working with disabled people: During 2009 and 2010, I helped disabled students at Swansea University, taking notes for them and sometimes teaching them as a subject specific tutor. â¢ Good working relationships: In all my previous jobs I have had an excellent relationship with my colleagues, enjoying always my time at work. â¢ Team work: from sports teams to work teams, I have always been comfortable when working as a part of a group, getting involved with the team spirit and with the groupâs achievements. â¢ Versatility: In the UK, I was able to adapt myself successfully to a new language and to a multicultural country with diverse races and customs from different nationalities.
â¢ Methodical and self-organised: All my achievements I have obtained during my academic studies and professional activities are due mainly to my methodological and systematic work.
