  • After finishing the PhD in 2014 at UTM (Malaysia) in the field of Biomedical Engineering, I started my Postdoc in Instruct Image Processing Centre (I2PC) at the National Centre for Biotechnology (Madrid-SP). This lab has being developed the well-known XMIPP software suite, together with other advanced tools as part of the European Strategic Infrastructure on Structural Biology. There, I had been involved in the development and implementation of image processing methods for Single Particle Analysis (cryo-EM) and Soft X-ray Tomography for open source software Xmipp, Scipion and Scipion Web-tools. In 2018, I moved to the Rouiller's lab located at the Bio21 Institute (The University of Melbourne). This is a structural biology lab and we use cryo-EM to determine the 3D structure of macromolecular protein complexes, including ATPases, bacterial transporters, and ion channels. We use cryo-ET to determine the 3D structure of viral proteins. Here my focus is on the development of image processing methods related to the Single Particle Analysis (SPA) and Sub-tomogram Averaging (STA).
