We work at PUC (Chile), iBio Millennium Institute 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.

Research interests:
i) Bioengineering tools (e.g  robust characterization of genetic parts)
ii) Open source technology for research and education (and fun) (e.g. Open Educational Resources , LOOP DNA fab tool)
iii) Multicellular organization (e.g. Fractals, Tractable deformation)
iv)  Workshops, practicals and technological residencies (e.g. Bakubung report, open tech workshops,  UK-Africa GCRFLabfd-UST Mendoza; Comunicaciones Especulativas and TReND in Africa)
v) Design and architecture (e.g. Synthetic Aesthetics, RedFungi)

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.
