  • PhD Candidate
  • Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
I am a Fulbright and Schlumberger fellow from Colombia. I have two BSc, one of them in Biology and the other in Biological Engineering. Additionally, I have an MSc in Biomedical Research. Currently I am doing my PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at Iowa State University. My research is focused on developing mathematical models for understanding plant-pathogen interactions. I am interested in the study of pathogenic organisms through the combination of mathematical modeling and experimental approaches, analyzing high-throughput data (like Y2H-Seq and RNA-Seq) to build plant-pathogen interaction networks. This knowledge contributes to understanding what factors underlie disease emergence, host susceptibility and pathogenic mechanisms.
