Instructors iGEM 2017
Thank you for your unconditional support!
He received his Ph.D. from the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) in 2004, obtaining the outstanding dissertation award of this institution. Nowadays, he is a professor at the School of Informatics - iSchool of this university and he is also researcher at the Instituto Universitario de Matemática Pura y Aplicada (IUMPA-UPV). His interests are the study of dynamical systems, chaos theory, mathematical modeling and multidisciplinary applications of graph theory. He is also enthusiastic about the development of students soft skills.
Jesús PicóControl Engineer
He is a control engineer fascinated by the world of systems and synthetic biology. Jesús Picó is Full Professor of Automatic Control at the Universitat Politècnica de València. He leads the group of Control of Complex Systems at the Institute for Automatic Control and Industrial Computing. His main interests are in modeling and feedback control of bioreactors, robust methods for estimation of metabolic fluxes and flux balance analysis, and nonlinear feedback control techniques applied to synthetic biological circuits. He has been instructor of the team since 2012.
He is Senior Researcher at Spanish Research Council and co-leader of the Plant Biotechnology Group at the Plant Molecular and Cell Biology Institute (IBMCP). Diego is interested in the design of innovative agricultural goods using synthetic biology tools. He learns how to re-direct the genetic program of the plants towards the synthesis of added-value products like fine chemicals or biopharmaceuticals.
He is Full Professor of Applied Physics and works in Synthetic Biology since 2005 were he has taken part in different Spanish and European SB projects dealing with the subject of biofuel production by microorganisms. In his research he has contributed to develop in-silico models of cyanobacteria capable of producing ethanol and hydrogen amongst other fuels, working hand-in-hand with biologists and biotechnologists. Since 2006 Javier has participated as Instructor in IGEM, contributing to attract students to the field of SB in Valencia.
José Luis CuetoArtist
José Luis Cueto
Doctor in Fine Arts from the UPV and Vice-chancellor of students, culture and sport. J.L Cueto is Professor in Fine Arts Degree and is currently a member of the Art and Environment Research Group. His interests are the relations of art with the society and the city, and museum spaces along with the didactics of new interactive technologies.This is his first time as an Instructor and he has been responsible for the support and guidance of our iGEM students during his career in the competition.
Nuria RodríguezGraphic Designer
Doctorate in Fine Arts from the UPV, she is a researcher at the Art and Environment Research Center. Her work focuses on the study of relationships between art and design and the recovery of the memory of women artists. She teaches in the Painting Department, where she collaborates in initiatives that relate the fusion of analog and digital procedures. This 2017 is her first time participating as an Instructor, helping us with our project's smart design.
