¿Quieres que te entreviste o tienes una historia para Mirada Científica? ¿Conoces a alguien que le pueda interesar? Estoy preparando la agenda de entrevistas para los meses de septiembre a diciembre de este año. Si te interesa, primero ten presente lo siguiente:

Lidia Badarnah: 'Nature provides a huge source of solutions'

Wilfredo Mendez Vazquez's picture

Lidia Badarnah is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Building Technology Program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Badarnah obtained her Ph.D in Biomimetics in Architecture at Delft University of Technology. She has specialized in biologically-inspired strategies for building envelopes adaptation and recently has developed a methodology for the generation of novel biomimetic design concepts. The crossover between architecture and scientific concepts is evident in Badarnah's work that ranges from biology to thermodynamics.

Puerto Rican neuroscientist and graduate student David Schwarz is part of Walk Again (Andar du Novo), a project that will allow a paraplegic Brazilian teen to control a robotic exoskeleton with their mind to execute the inaugural kick at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This event will be historical for many reasons. First, it is the culmination of years of research and the collective work of hundreds of scientists around the world, from engineers, to computer scientists, to neuroscientists.
