Eduardo Castro Nallar
Universidad Andrés Bello
His research focuses on experimental and computational techniques to understand the causes and consequences of microbial genetic diversity. Most of his work involves the use of high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics to gain insight into problems under the OneHealth framework. Currently, Dr. Castro-Nallar is studying microbial communities in the water column in Patagonia fjords with emphasis on changes triggered by human activities such as aquaculture. In addition, his work also focuses in developing and evaluating methods for metagenomic community profiling and phylogenetics. He is a fellow of the UCDavis Chile program and an adjunct researcher at the Computational Biology Institute, George Washington University.
