Staff Profile

Dr Angel Goni-Moreno

Lecturer in Synthetic Biology



I was born in Madrid (Spain) on the 6th of August, 1983. In 2001 I started studying Computer Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain. After getting the degree I joined the Natural Computing Group at UPM and started researching in the fields of DNA Computing and Computational Biology. In 2010 I earned an European Ph.D. in Computer Engineering (in the field of Bacterial Computing). I also held a M. Sc. degree in Artificial Intelligence (UPM). After UPM I joined the Novel Computation Group of the School of Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology at Manchester Metropolitan University (UK) as a post-doc. When I finished that position, in early 2013, I came back to Madrid to join the Victor de Lorenzo's lab which is part of the Systems Biology Program at CNB-CSIC (Centro Nacional de Biotecnología - National Center for Biotechnology). During the summer of 2016 I moved to Newcastle to join the School of Computing Science and the Centre for Synthetic Biology as a Lecturer in Synthetic Biology.
