During my PhD, I applied synthetic biology to human health and biotechnology.
I developped concepts, systematic methods, computational tools and biological standards to:
- 1. Engineer next-generation diagnostics. I engineered autonomous and programmable biosensors integrating multiplexed pathological biomarker detection and complex biological signal processing as intelligent diagnostic devices.
- 2. Engineer novel biocomputing devices that solve complex problems and process/interface biological information at the microscale. I developed microfluidic and computer assisted methodologies to program these synthetic biosystems from the bottum-up (e.g. protocells).
I believe that collaboration between scientists and promotion of interdisciplinarity is the key to understand and engineer biology.
