Summary:
Main University studies: I has two University degrees one in Mathematic Sciences (1964-1969) and another in Economic Sciences (1974-1979). I received several diplomas on management studies.

Professional works: I was Invited Professor of Mathematics in the Economic Faculty of the University of Havana (1974-1976) and in the High Engineering Institute (1992-1993). During (1990-1993), I was invited Professor for post-graduate studies in the Diplomatic Academy of Cuba and in the Inter-ministerial Disarmament Committee. I was tutor of several graduated thesis in the Diplomatic Academy of Cuba.

From 1980-2006, I worked as diplomatic of my country. I was Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Cuba to the IAEA (1981 and 1990), Ambassador and Head of Delegation during the negotiations of the Chemical Weapons Convention and before the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva (1993) and Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Cuba to the Preparatory Commission of the OPCW (1993 to 1995). I was the Chairman of several working groups in both international organizations. I was Head and Deputy Head of the delegation of Cuba to the IAEA General Conference and the IAEA Board of Governors from 1980-1990, Head of the delegation to the Disarmament Conferences in 1993, and Head of the delegation of Cuba to Plenary Session of OPCW Preparatory Commission during 1993-1995. I participated as Cuban delegate in several international conferences organized by the IAEA, the Non-Aliened Movement and other specialized agencies. I participated also as expert in non-proliferation and disarmament in several international and regional conferences from 1990-1995.

I worked during 1995 to 2003 as IAEA senior manager and Head of the Latin America Section (1997-1998).

I work now as Independent Consultant on International Affairs.
