TEACHING, BUT MOSTLY LEARNING

Teaching has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career. I've learned to find the essential concepts and insight on each subject, convey ideas and in the process spread my passion for building performance.  Teaching has lead me to be always up to date and  and made me into a better leader. 
After 5 years of several workshops, presentation and  and full university courses I could be pretty much ready to give a 4 hour workshop on Energy modelling, Sustainability Certifications, comfort, Natural Ventilation, Lighting.

BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM) - SPECIALISATION DEGREE

Buenos Aires University - Faculty of Architecture Design and Urbanism

BIM is the new must have, this course aims to instruct the students in the necessary tools to successfully deliver and manage BIM through out the building lifetime. 
My role as associate professor was to teach three courses which comprise 15% of the curricula hours. Simulation and analysis of building performance I and II, adn sustainability analysis.
I will continue to be a professor and teach online.

LEED V4 CERTIFICATION; DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION - POSTGRADUATE COURSE

Torcuato Di Tella University

The goal of this postgraduate course, aimed at construction professional was to prepare them to manage and deliver a LEED certification and teach about the essential concepts of sustainability in buildings. 
I participated in various editions of the course teaching about energy modelling, comfort and interior air quality and how to comply with LEED and ASHRAE standards.

BUILDING PERFORMANCE SIMULATION WORKSHOPS.

Various establishmentes: UB - Bienal FADU - ASADES - CAC UNLP - etc

I was invited to deliver various workshops on different subjects related to building performance simulation in different formats, software and organisations.
