Luis A. Pérez Almodóvar

Luis Pérez-Almodóvar is currently a semester away from finishing his Master’s Degree in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus. His thesis consists of developing new methods for detection of High Energetic Materials (HEM). Luis’s project is about coupling Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) with Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) to separate mixtures, detect and quantify different types of explosives. Also, he uses Chemometrics Multivariate Analysis to understand the model of the target system. Among his future goals is to pursue a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry, focusing on the Forensic Area. He has had internships and research experiences where he worked on to building his skills. Over the past few years, he has been strengthening these skills through his work. He is looking for a position that will allow him to use his research and analysis skills and help him grow as a scientist.
