Ariel studied Technology in Production and Industrial Safety at Universidad de las Américas (UDLA). In 2018, he specialized by completing an International Certification Yellow Belt Lean Six Sigma with LSS Institute.

Ariel is the Terrestrial Ecology Laboratory Coordinator at the GSC and provides support to researchers and students who use the laboratory. Among his responsibilities, he collects data from the meteorological stations maintained by the GSC on the island, as well as monitoring other sensors for research on various topics including air quality, rainwater isotope measurements, and freshwater flow monitoring.

Ariel considers himself a curious and active person with new knowledge and experiences always motivating him. Living in San Cristobal has brought him closer to the sea, so surfing has become his hobby.
