Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea as well as a freelance Spanish interpreter and translator. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.
My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics (physics) and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.
I collaborate with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am also involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen. I have long-distance students which I tutor via Skype. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.
I am also a freelance translator with experience in teaching Spanish.
