Dr. Ing. Ángel Goñi Moreno is a Lecturer in Synthetic Biology at Newcastle University from 2016. He is part of the Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex Biosystems (ICOS) research group, and member of the Centre for Synthetic Biology and the Bioeconomy (CSBB).Currently teaching at the MSc in Synthetic Biology of Newcastle University.

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 Synthetic Biology). 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 where I am at the moment.
