Sergio Alejandro Poveda Cuevas
Alejandro graduated in biology from the Pedagogical and Technological University of Colombia. He then studied Bioinformatics for his Master's from the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2015. During this period, he worked with Prof. Dr. Fernando Luís Barroso da Silva and studied protein complexes related to cancer. He then pursued his Ph.D. and was co-supervised by Prof. Dr. Barroso (USP) and Dr. Catherine Etchebest (Université Paris Cité). His doctoral thesis includes the study of the NS1 protein of the Zika virus where he evaluated the role of protein oligomerization, binding affinity with membrane, epitope estimates, and glycosylation in infection and virulence. Currently, he is a post-doc in the Computational Cell Biology (CCB) lab, where he is interested in the modeling and simulation of IDRs and their role in membrane remodeling events.
