Tell us a little about Your background?

I studied Chemical Engineering at National University Major of San Marcos in Lima as well as worked previously at BASF Poland in Wrocław for the quality control area.

Why did you chose to come to Luleå?

Always I have liked the idea of doing an internship abroad due to working in a new country used to be exciting, beside it means living a new culture, learning a new language and facing new challenges.

At the beginning the unknown made me hesitate, however before filling my application, someone told me once, "we only regret opportunities we do not take” I did not pay too much attention to it, however being at 11 600 km far away from home makes me realize that it is true and I would not like to miss this opportunity.

How did You like working here?

Currently I am working on projects for the waste science and technology department. Being part of high-impact projects related with the environment encourages me always give my best. LTU gives me a pleasant atmosphere learning at all times from my supervisors and colleagues either weekly meetings and during fika.

Enjoy the nature, northern lights, frozen sea and a multicultural team undoubtedly are part of this unforgettable experience.
