Hello, world! My name is Adrià Terradellas Igual (@adriterradellas) and I will be your curator during this week.
I was born in Barcelona in 1994, where I grew up along with my grandparents’ town, Bigues (Vallès Oriental). I am very curious (and a bit crazy) for as long as I can remember, something that led me to do sciences studies.
At the present time, I am a student at the University of Barcelona. This coming semester I’ve been selected to be an exchange student at the École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne, in Switzerland. Here I have planned to finish my BSc in Physics.
At the beginning of last year I had the opportunity to do a research internship at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, in a very nice team (Nanoscopy for Nanomedicine group). With them I could learn about super resolution microscopy and self-assembly, as well as strengthen my interest in the boundaries of physics. Now I’m doing for them a Computer Simulation as a Final Project for my degree, studying the superselective behaviour of a self-assembled fibre in membrane cells for drug delivery.
I have particularly interest in applied physics into biological systems. The evolution of complex systems like the brain or cancer, patterns found in nature and fundamental questions catch my attention. Broadly speaking, learning is a modus vivendi.
Apart from that, I enjoy music in my free time, I like international relations and politics. I’m also considered to be cine/seriephile (a passionate of soundtracks), waiting for the very expected third season of Twin Peaks. I recommend Black Mirror as an invitation to think in the not that far future and Westworld is the new indispensable.
I think Costa Brava is an essential part of my country, where I like to spend time (no matter when). In particular, I love Cadaqués, a source of inspiration and a good place for needed calm. I hope to be there soon with Sara, my partner.
