I have been playing volleyball for more than 10 years, from high school to grad school. I have been part of the SKC Studenten Vereniging Volleyball club in Leiden and the RVC/Libanon '50 club in Rotterdam.
I also enjoy watching volleyball matches, the last summer's World League final between Brazil and the USA was really good (especially the first set) and it is available here.
I have served the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rotterdam as sacristan of the church 'Sagrada Familia'. You can check our website here, and contact me if you are planning to take any sacrament and you need advice within The Netherlands. Moreover, I encourage you to know about our foundation 'Nuestra Casa' that helps immigrants (especially from Latin America) in complex situations to establish in The Netherlands.
You can also learn about Science-Religion ties by checking the website of the Vatican Observatory and its Foundation, which you could also support. Finally, you can always watch the daily mass in Spanish from Barcelona at this site.
RECA Summer Internship
I am currently directing the RECA Summer Internship Program, which is a scientific research training program in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology aimed at students from Colombian institutions. During a period of approximately 10 weeks, students will develop a research project supervised by scientists inside and outside the country.
In this way, we intend to foster in the student the necessary skills to carry out scientific research, contribute to their academic training and improve their curriculum in order to strengthen applications to postgraduate programs in astronomy and related areas at a global level.
