Hi I'm Eduardo. This is my website. Here's my life story.
I'm a scientist, I work with single cell RNA sequencing.
I recently defended my PhD at Caltech (thesis PDF, defense).
Here's a CV if you care. And GitHub. And LinkedIn. And publications.

As my real job I work with some of my best friends from Caltech at ImYoo doing lots of single cell RNA sequencing and bioinformatics.

As my surreal job I am on a resolute mission to reinvent education in Brazil. I do that as a visiting scholar at the UC Berkeley School of Education with Erin Murphy-Graham and advancing innovative education and research with the Vilson Groh Institute in Floripa. They coordinate a formidable network of 8 organizations focused on education, built over 40 years of outstanding grassroots work. Here is an article I wrote about them in 2021. See this slide deck for more pictures. If you are interested in (international) education, social justice, the future of cities, developing countries, eradicating urban misery or related topics, feel free to contact me at eduardo@redeivg.org.br.

3D Printing

Using UCSF Chimera to 3D print proteins.
Note: ChimeraX is out and offers a much better experience.

Website menagerie

I like making websites on a whim.
Here's a selection of the best ones, which will live forever on Netlify

derp.news - real headlines, fake news!
xenocracy.org - a sustainable alternative to democracy
Caltech Biosciences happy hour - we got 3 sponsors with this site!
Sovereignty club original landing page - started as a joke, remains one
gCALtech - daily emails with Caltech events
Soylent with students - see for yourself
Protein Bender - honestly I made it just for the logo
Decentralization Club - we never did much, other than entering the matrix
ChatBread - the future of chat?
Dylan 2020 - almost got Dylan to run for congress with this one
