I obtained his BSc in Biology from the University of Málaga (Spain), and then moved to the
University of Exeter (UK) for my PhD in Quantitative Biology with Prof. Robert Beardmore. Here I focused on the adaptation of Escherichia coli to antibiotics as a function of drug concentration, and spatial organisation by combining mathematical modelling, experimental evolution, molecular biology, and algorithm development. To study the relationship between spatial organisation of E. coli and emergence of resistant mutants, I co-developed a device to track the the growth of bacteria on Petri dishes, technology that he would later use to develop the light modulator (LIMO®).
Currently I am developing at Stanford University a point-of-care milifluidic diagnostic device that can detect SARS-CoV-2 in biological samples. The goal is to make a device that is affordable and can be easily mass produced. In the future I hope to adapt the underlying technology to detect other pathogens.
