Felipe joined OBL as a Research Assistant at the University of Cambridge. He is currently working in an SBOL-based database for our plasmid collections and developing open-access protocols with the Opentrons OT-2 automation platform. Felipe previously acquired an MSc degree in Synthetic Biology and Biotechnology from the University of Edinburgh, and a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from the University of São Paulo. During this time, he’s been part of several iGEM competition teams representing São Paulo and helping other South-American groups.
He’s our group’s resident coder, and is interested in developing better ways to share, maintain, and characterize the DNA tools we create in the lab.
