Marcos Valenzuela-Ortega

Marcos is currently a PhD candidate in the University of Edinburgh, focusing his research on how synthetic biology can solve limitations in industrial biotechnology. Before his PhD project, he worked for the biotech company Ingenza.

In his internship with Sense about Science, Marcos wants to help other researchers be more engaged with the public and open about their research – spreading scientific values such as critical thinking and evidence to the rest of society.
