Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Eduardo A. Castro’s career was launched by studying Physical Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry of the La Plata National University of La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina, during 1963-70. His diploma work to get his PhD Degree was on calculation of HMO and related semi empirical methods of beta-carotene for analyze chemical reactivity and electronic spectrum. Incidentally, his only available computational resource on that time was a diagonalization subroutine for symmetric matrices and his only disposable instruction book was Andrew Streitwieser´s on Theoretical Organic Chemistry. From 1971-72 he performed his Ph.D. work at the Physics Department of the National La Plata University, working under supervision of Manuel Sorarrain. After that we find him as a research scientist at the Theoretical and Applied Research Institute located at La Plata National University where he founded the Group for Theoretical Chemistry in 1974. Then, he was appointed as a member of the Scientific Researcher Career in the Argentina National Research Council, and he continues up to the present time as a Superior Researcher.
A. K. Haghi holds a BSc in urban and environmental engineering from the University of North Carolina (USA); a MSc in mechanical engineering from North Carolina A&T State University (USA); a DEA in applied mechanics, acoustics and materials from Université de Technologie de Compiègne (France); and a PhD in engineering sciences from Université de Franche-Comté (France). He is the author and editor of 165 books as well as 1000 published papers in various journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Haghi has received several grants, consulted for a number of major corporations, and is a frequent speaker to national and international audiences. Since 1983, he served as a professor at several universities. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of Polymers Research Journal and on the editorial boards of many international journals. He is also a faculty member of University of Guilan (Iran) and a member of the Canadian Research and Development Center of Sciences and Cultures (CRDCSC), Montreal, Canada.
