Before his arrival, he worked for fifteen years in the Argentinian higher education system, where he was director of the undergraduate course in public relations at two universities (Universidad Abierta Interamericana -2010/2019- and Universidad del Salvador -2005/2010) and module leader in undergraduate and postgraduate courses at four other universities (UB, UAustral, UCA and UNLaM).
