Resumen CV / Summary

Antes de unirse a EAFIT, Nicolás Pinel hizo parte del Instituto de Biología de Sistemas en Seattle (Washington, Estados Unidos) como investigador posdoctoral, donde participó en proyectos colaborativos con el Centro de Biomedicina de Sistemas de Luxemburgo y otros institutos de talla internacional. Es Doctor en Microbiología de la Universidad de Washington, con énfasis en Astrobiología. Trae consigo amplia experiencia computacional, bioinformática, de campo y de laboratorio con organismos tan diversos como microalgas, virus humanos, organismos extremófilos (en altas temperaturas, altas salinidades, y alta acidez, entre otros ambientes), bacterias anaeróbicas, levaduras marinas y sistemas simbióticos. Le apasiona compartir el encanto del mundo natural y la fascinación de la investigación a través de la docencia.

Before joining EAFIT, Nicolas Pinel was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle (Washington State, USA), where he participated in collaborative projects with the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). He earned a Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Washington with emphasis in Astrobiology. Nicolas has extensive computational, bioinformatic, field and laboratory experience with organisms as diverse as microalgae, human viruses, extremophiles (thermophiles, halophiles, aci​dophiles, etc.), anaerobic bacteria, marine yeast, and simbiotic systems. He is passionate about sharing the wonder of the natural world and the fascination of the process of discovery with students of all levels.
