MSc degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from KU Leuven (Belgium) and TU Dresden (Germany). 
Currently: PhD student at Bionanoscience/Chirlmin Joo lab, TU Delft

I came to Europe all the way from Colombia to pursue my master studies as part of the Erasmus Mundus program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. After completing my degree, I started looking for a PhD position, but it was not easy to find a place in which physics, biology and nanoscience were so strongly connected. Luckily, Dr. Chirlmin Joo from the Bionanoscience department of TU Delft had an idea for a very multidisciplinary and interesting project, so here I am! Now I am using solid state nanopores to develop a new technique for protein sequencing in collaboration with Prof. Cees Dekker. (Casimir Research School)
