Professionally, I am Scientific Researcher in Structural Biochemistry passionate by the dynamics of multidomain proteins and flexible protein regions. To tackle these biological unknowns I’ve specialized in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, mostly the Paramagnetic NMR, and in molecular biology techniques for the production of high quality protein samples suited for NMR. I’ve always felt great passion for computer programming, specially that dedicated to scientific purposes and, because of that, I’ve recently shifted to a more computational driven research where I am developing fully featured software suites for tackle biologically relevant questions, always within the field of flexible and complex proteins.
You can find my PhD. Thesis in Research Gate, there I present a thoughtful bibliographic investigation on Paramagnetic NMR and Matrix Metalloproteinases-1.
Out of the lab, we are mountain lovers who are always looking for an excuse to be away from home :-) We attempt always a pure style in mountaineering and diving, keeping to minimums our impact in Nature, even if this means loosing some sights or opportunities. We were lucky to learn from the best in our surroundings, hopefully we will honour those teachings. And no adventure is concluded without a beer and a story telling ;-)
Little by little I am migrating my old blog to here.
