Staff Scientist

 at Lawrence Berkley National Lab

Hector Garcia Martin was born in Bilbao, part of the Basque region in Spain. He studied physics and specialized in solid state physics at the University of the Basque Country. His doctoral studies in condensed matter physics were performed at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign. His interest in biocomplexity and predicting microbial ecology drove him to work at the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, where he worked on metagenomics as a postdoctoral fellow. Seeking a more predictive framework for biology, he has worked at the Joint BioEnergy Institute, the Agile BioFoundry and Berkeley Lab for the last sixteen years, developing a variety of methods to make synthetic biology a more predictive discipline. In this role, he combines mechanistic models with machine learning approaches, microfluidics and genetic editing techniques to significantly improve our ability to predict the behavior of biological systems.
