Maria de la Soledad del Río Alvarez Arkansas State University Queretaro

Just after finishing her major, del Río started teaching at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Then, she won a scholarship to do a PhD in Canary Islands. Upon completion, she decided to come to Mexico to develop her career, both in the fields of research and teaching. She taught Physics and Mathematics in Guanajuato (UGTO) and Puebla (UPAEP, ITSA, ITESM), at bachelor level, and Radioastronomy at graduate level in INAOE.

Now, she is a faculty member of Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro.
She has published several articles and conference papers on topics related to galactic and extragalactic astronomy, and now she is dabbling in a new and fascinating branch of science, management and analysis of big data. She also loves to give popular talks to make science accessible to everyone.

When possible, she is an avid reader, mainly of historical novels and biographies, enjoys the open spaces, hiking, caving and the company of friends and family.

Dr. María de la Soledad del Río shared the results of her research on the Zoning of the Queretaro Wine Region at the 44th World Meeting of Vine and Wine of the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) in Cádiz, Spain. This meeting is the most important one in the field of wine culture and the OIV is made up of 49 member states around the globe. Presentations made during the event are based on a scientific or academic paper and are chosen for relevance and excellence.

She also presented her latest findings at the Festival of Queretaro Wine last month, which included a special private presentation with simultaneous translation for the visiting French delegation.

Her work, which entails the analysis of dozens of parameters (including soil, terroir, rain and health of the plant), is currently being supported by A-State Querétaro, Freixenet and the Wine Cluster of Querétaro.
