My background is at the intersection between Cell Signaling and Synthetic Biology. I am an enthusiast of interdisciplinary research as it creates unique profiles to explore Science from different perspectives.
Yeasts are fun!
I did my PhD in the Posas lab in Barcelona working with the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I was involved in Systems and Synthetic biology projects including the analysis of the underlying dynamic properties of MAP Kinase signaling pathways and the use of yeast multicellular engineered networks to implement novel methods for biological computation.
Technology development leads Science
I work under the assumption that new technologies, such as new biosensors, interrogating tools or techniques, lead scientific discovery. Therefore, for my present and future research I plan to conduct a parallel effort for technology development and biological discovery.
Go Single Cells!
Cells are essentially noisy. Low molecule copy numbers and femto to nano liter volumes are central obstacles for Single Cells to execute precise functions. Bulk population assays have been masking this fact that can not be ignored anymore. My Postdoc in the Covert lab at Stanford's BioEngineering department is focused in developing new technologies for the study of live single cells.
Never Stop Exploring!
The edge will always be farther than the eye can see.
The Regot lab is comming up soon!
I am really excited to say that I will be starting my lab at the Molecular Biology and Genetics Department at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine!! A truly amazing environment to do exciting science!

My main career goals...
My major professional goals are three:
1- to conduct research combining technology development and single cell analysis to understand the biology of individual cells in live multicellular systems. 2- to help develop the research community of a top university. 3- to impart the knowledge and training which I will acquire to bright students as a professor and mentor.
