I am a civil engineer, graduated from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras in the year 2012. I’ve been working in the construction industry, in Honduras, as an assistant supervisor in the company named Saybe y Asociados S. de R.L. from November 2012 until June of the year 2015. During these years I helped in the quality control of the materials and the project management of the constructions that I was assigned. Then I decided to apply to a master’s degree program and was accepted in the Universidad Nacional de Colombia sede Medellin, to become a full time student and learn about sustainable construction using alternative materials such as alkali activated cements, an alternative to the ordinary Portland cement. This binder can be used to stabilized soil blocks and become a sustainable material. Both of them are been studied worldwide and need more research to enable its use in the construction industry as alternative sustainable materials.
