Dr. Fernando Javier Torres obtained his B.Sc. in Chemistry in 2003 at Universidad San Francisco de Quito. In 2004, he was awarded a scholarship of the Region of Piedmont's Program, and he started the same year his Ph.D. studies at the Universita degli Studi di Torino, being part of the Grupo di Chimica Teorica. Under the supervision of Profs. P. Ugliengo, R. Dovesi and C. Pisani, he worked in various projects concerning the quantum-mechanical periodic calculations of the properties of crystalline materials and their interaction with small guests like molecular hydrogen. After obtaining his Ph.D. degree, Dr. Torres worked as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Arizona where he worked on the theoretical simulation of the reaction mechanism of molecular systems in gas-phase. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department at USFQ, and he is the Director of the national scientific association Grupo Ecuatoriano para el Estudio Experimental y Teorico de Nanosistemas
