I received a doctor’s degree in 1999, a Master’s Degree in Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering in 2005 and a Doctor of Medicine in 2008. Since 1998 I work in the Interdisciplinary Group of Theoretical Biology. There I have trained in the areas of Developmental Neurobiology and Theoretical Biology. We used as model the optical tectum of chicken embryos. Our work has two aspects, one experimental and one theoretical.

From the experimental point of view, we perform activities such as immunohistochemistry, rtPCR, in situ hybridization, tissue culture, 2D and 3D reconstructions, etc., techniques that allow to perform temporal and spatial registers of the operation of different cellular developmental behaviors; In the area of theoretical biology, we perform analysis of complex signals (temporal and spatial obtained from the mentioned registers) in order to characterize the dynamics of the cellular developmental behaviors responsible for the changes in these signals.
