Overview

J. Eduardo Sosa H., PhD. SNI 1 Postdoctoral researcher School of Engineering and Sciences Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico ACADEMIC BACKGROUND PhD (Biomedical Engineering and Physics) MPhil (Biomedical Engineering and Physics) MSc (Physics) RESEARCH INTERESTS My research interest in quantitative biology focuses on soft matter, biotechnology processes, and bio-polymers towards improving bio-medicine and the environment. My researcher career started 12 years ago by studying the motility of microorganisms. Arriving at Tec the research was focused on biopolymer production using microalgae from food wastes which continues. My latest project is focused on identifying emerging contaminants in waste-water to facilitate sustainability and carbon capture biotechnology. Along these 12 years with a good multidisciplinary effort and teamwork, I have had the opportunity to participate in several topics. Now I have grown as a researcher with 26 publications and an escalating profile with 760 citations, 13 h-index, and 13 i10-index according to Google Scholar global citation. During this time, I have worked with partners at KCL and UoB in the UK; DCU in Ireland; ASU and UMD in the US; UAB and CSIC, in Spain. My goal is to keep growing as a researcher and consolidate me as Tec Research Professor. PI of the project focused on COVID-19 surveillance for the CDMX funded by SECTEI and as leader of the collaboration with UNAM and IPN. CURRENT PROJECTS 1. PHAs production using coffee waste residues and its industrial and medical applications. 2. Development of Skin on a Chip and its biomedical potential. 3. Biocatalysis: Biodegradation of hazardous pollutants and emerging contaminants using immobilized enzymes by microfluidics. 4. COVID 19 detection and monitoring by Wastewater Based Epidemiology. - Tec de Monterrey monitoring. - Ciudad de México estandarization and transfer to SACMEX. - Monitoring of Monterrey and metropolitan area. 5. CO2 biocapture by microalgae for industrial applications. 6. Compostable batteries to achieve sustainability in segregated regions of south Mexico.
