Personal profile

As an assistant professor and metabolomics researcher at the iOMICAS Institute, my academic journey began with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry, leading to an MSc. in Biology focusing on Computational and Structural Molecular Biochemistry and Bioinformatics and a Ph.D. in Science-Biology. My postdoctoral pursuits in Systems Biology have unfolded at the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences at PUJ-Cali. I also teach and share my over 20 years of experience in university-level education and research.
My current projects span a wide range of areas, demonstrating my versatility and broad knowledge. I am deeply invested in modeling and simulating metabolic networks through the Flux Balance Analysis (FBA) method. Some projects include reconstructing gene regulatory networks to identify candidate genes of genomic instability, conducting comparative genomics studies to detect new cancer markers, and examining protein interactions in significant plant species. A key aspect of my work involves a genome-scale analysis of microorganisms and plant metabolism to understand their response to environmental stressors.
Through my research, I strive to decode the complex interplay within biological systems, contributing to a deeper understanding that may bridge gaps between computational biology and practical applications in human health and agriculture.
