My research interests are focused, in a broad sense, in complexity and on how apparently simple local interactions at a given scale, becomes a global dynamics and in what kind of rules are in charge of this kind of behavior and whether they are transversal and functionally conserved properties across all systems and finally if they can be truly understood and harnessed as an engineering tool. Strictly speaking, I am working on the study of lateral genetic transfers in bacterial populations using the integrative approach of computational systems biology, incorporating the molecular and the wet lab knowledge gathered by biologists, to construct bottom-up simulation models and subsequently explore the system dynamics. I am BS in agronomics engineering, holding a postgraduate in production engineering and an MSc degree in computer science from UPM. Previously, during my undergraduate period, I did research in the area of statistics applied to the climatology and now I combine my PhD research with the work in the IT industry.
