Research and About

We work at PUC (Chile), FONDAP-CRG and  OpenPlant – University of Cambridge (UK).  We promote open technologies for bioengineering, science and education. We are part of the GOSH open hardware movement.

Interests:
i) Bioengineering tools for microbes (e.g  robust characterization of genetic parts)
ii) Open source technology (e.g. TECNOx)
iii) Morphogenesis in simple multicellular systems (e.g. Fractals, Tractable deformation)
iv) Plant Synthetic Biology (e.g. LOOP DNA assembly in planta cytometry)
v) Design (e.g. Synthetic Aesthetics)
vi) Education (e.g. BioBuilder, High School workshops)
vii) Capacity building (e.g. TReND in Africa, UK-Africa Global Challenges)
viii) Microscopy for fun! (e.g. article at WIRED – mind the “enthusiasm” in the title…)

We work with great collaborators such as Jim Haseloff, Gudy KauselKeymer Lab, Backyard Brains, Neil Dalchau, Rodrigo Gutierrez, Endy Lab, Phil Ross, Biodesign FADEU and the Rudge lab.

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.
