Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Paulo Oemig Ambition to improve upon oneself has no geographical boundaries. Born and raised in Argentina, Paulo Oemig moved to United States in 1993 where he studied and became fluent in the English language at Brigham Young University. His degree in chemistry from Argentina allowed him to work full-time in an environmental laboratory while pursuing an anthropology degree in Salt Lake City. In 1999, he became a US naturalized citizen.

Having studied chemistry before coming to the United States provided him with a background in physical science and the scientific inquiry which he applied to his study of physical anthropology at the University of Utah and studies abroad at Cambridge University, UK. His undergraduate work focused on evolutionary ecology. Looking to bridge physical and social anthropology landed him at New Mexico State University for graduate studies in cultural anthropology where he completed his Master's degree.

Since 2005 Paulo has been teaching eighth-grade science at Zia Middle School in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He finds teaching very rewarding and challenging at the same time; there is seldom a dull moment in his teaching.
