Yoshiki Vázquez-Baeza

Yoshiki Vázquez-Baeza

My name is Yoshiki Vázquez-Baeza, I was born and raised in Mexico City, I attended Universidad Iberoamericana (from 2008 to 2012) where I earned my bachelor of science in biomedical engineering. During this time I co-founded and lead the Software Development Group for two years, formed part of the Robotics Group, lead a course of iOS development and worked for the Center of Engineering and Rehabilitation of the University.

I moved to the USA (at the beginning of 2012) where I began working as an intern in Rob Knight’s laboratory at the University of Colorado at Boulder; my goal here was to finish my undergraduate thesis (Design and Development of a Spectral Analysis Methodology of the Human Microbiome). In the beginning of september of 2012 I started woking in various software related projects relevant to microbial ecology research; ever since I’ve been contributing to several of them and other open source projects.

I am one of the maintainers and original authors of MATSOL and of iBero; both iOS applications, one (MATSOL) targeting the use cases of engineering students and the other (iBero) created for the students of my alma mater Universidad Iberoamericana.

Currently I contribute to EMPeror, Evident, QIIME, SciKit-Bio and the QIIME Web Application.
