About me

I am a Physicist with a strong multidisciplinary background in biophysics, computational physics, DNA nanotechnology, polymer physics and soft condensed matter. My work aims to understand how topology and geometry can be used to control the mechanical properties of soft matter. In particular, I am interested in the use of biology to assist the advances in physics, and physics to understand biological processes and create/characterise new topological biomaterials.

I hold a MSc in Physics (2014 – UNAM, Mexico) and a PhD in Computational Biophysics (2018 -University of Edinburgh, UK). After my PhD I joined to Prof. Sakaue’s Lab (Aoyama Gakuin University, Japan), a world leader in theoretical polymer physics and nanotechnology. Currently I am working as a Senior Postdoctoral Research Associate in the University of Edinburgh, where I am part of a multidisciplinary group (Topologically Active Polymers, led by Dr. Michieletto) using polymer physics, biology, simulations and experiments, to develop and characterise a new type of materials made of DNA, whose mechanical properties can be modified by the action of proteins.
