Ángel Goñi Moreno
Ángel is a post-doctoral researcher at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), working with Martyn Amos on the BACTOCOM project. He studied Computer Engineering at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain; after graduating he joined the Natural Computing Group at UPM, and began his research in the fields of DNA Computing and Computational Biology. In May 2010, five months before joining MMU, he earned an European Ph.D. in Computer Engineering. He also holds a M. Sc. degree in Artificial Intelligence (UPM).
In the context of BACTOCOM, his skills as a computational biologist (including modelling and simulation of bacterial-based systems) contribute to an interdisciplinary group distributed across Europe. He is currently working on the wet-lab validation of his models of cell-growth and bacterial conjugation (where both internal and external cell dynamics are being controlled) with other BACTOCOM partners.
