The expert is the first Cuban to assume direction functions in the prestigious society, founded in 2001, but his work began in the 11th Meeting of the Agricultural Meteorology Commission of the World Meteorology Organization held in Havana in February of 1995.

INSAM has 27 members in Cuba, one of the nations with the highest number in relation to the number of inhabitants.
