Cheminement académique

Avant de devenir professeur à l'UQAM en octobre 2020, Alejandro Di Luca a vécu plus de 7 ans à Sydney en Australie où il a effectué un stage postdoctoral a l'University of New South Wales et après il a obtenu une bourse de l'Australian Research Council pour continuer ses recherches comme chercheur indépendant en début de carrière. En 2012-2013, Alejandro a fait un court étage postdoctoral à l'École Polytechnique à Paris en France. Après avoir obtenu son Baccalauréat en science de l'atmosphère à l'Universidad de Buenos Aires en Argentine en 2006, il a obtenu une Maîtrise en sciences de l'atmosphère à l'Université du Québec à Montréal en 2008. Depuis 2011, Alejandro est titulaire d'un Doctorat en sciences de l'atmosphère de l'UQAM.
