Professor Natalio Krasnogor
Professor of Computing Science and Synthetic Biology

I am a Professor of Computing Science and Synthetic Biology at the School of Computing Science at Newcastle University. (I moved to Newcastle, from the University of Nottingham, on the 1st-September-2013)

I co-direct Newcastle's Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group.

I am also affiliated with the Centre for Synthetic Biology and Bioexploitation as well as with the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology.

My research activities lie at the interface of Computing Science and the Natural Sciences, e.g. Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I apply my expertise on Machine Intelligence (e.g. optimisation, data mining, big data, evolutionary learning), Complex Systems and Unconventional Computing (e.g. biocomputing) to Bioinformatics, Systems and Synthetic Biology.

My research is generously funded from a number of external sources that supports multiple projects.

I currently do not teach any modules as I have an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship in Synthetic Biology. I do, of course, ocassional invited lectures and plenary talks.
