We work at PUC (Chile) and  OpenPlant – University of Cambridge (UK).  We promote open technologies for bioengineering, science and education. We are part of the GOSH and TECNOx open technology movements.

Interests:
i) Bioengineering tools (e.g  robust characterization of genetic parts)
ii) Open source technology (e.g. Open Educational Resources , LOOP DNA fab tool)
iii) Morphogenesis in simple multicellular systems (e.g. Fractals, Tractable deformation)
iv) Design (e.g. Synthetic Aesthetics)
v) Education (e.g. Bakubung report, open tech workshops)
vi) Capacity building (e.g UK-Africa GCRFLabfd-UST Mendoza; and TReND in Africa)
viii) Microscopy for fun! (e.g. WIRED – please mind the “enthusiasm” in the title…)

Short Bio:
I was born in Mendoza, Argentina, and I am a Boca Juniors fan. I studied two years of Engineering  and three of Biology. I worked one year at the Alvarez-Buylla lab (UNAM) before moving to Cambridge to do a PhD in Biological Sciences at Jim Haseloff ´s lab. All my education has been kindly supported by the free educational system of Argentina and international scholarships from  JP II Foundation; Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Becas LIDER.
