Luis Alberto Gutiérrez López

Luis is an undergraduate Physics student at the Universidad de los Andes. Since his school years he’s been interested in science, deeply fascinated by the way our Universe works and particularly by the mechanisms of life. His interest in Biology led him to explore other fields like Physics, in the hope that a bigger picture of knowledge would help him find bridges between the biological and physical sciences. This passion made him a very devoted student which enabled him to be awarded as Best High School Graduate of Colombia in 2011. Besides his enthusiasm for study, he loves physical activity, especially swimming and jogging. He also enjoys literature. He decided to join iGEM because he considers it an excellent opportunity to become familiar with research and learn many useful things about molecular biology, mathematics and programming.
