Hi Ramón! Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Coding is one of my biggest hobbies, the fact that I get paid to do it is just amazing.
I studied electronics and computer science at KTH (Royal Institute of technology). I knew from early on that I wanted to focus on the software side of things.
Before coming to Cellink I was in the consultancy gig, also did some teaching during that time.
What sparked your interest to work with 3D Bioprinting?
I thought the tech was cool and had a real impact on both academia and industry. My sole goal after uni was to use my competence for the good of humanity, bioprinting matches that goal with a good margin.
What do you hope to see happen with 3D Bioprinting during your lifetime?
Transplanted bioprinted organs is a no-brainer. Beyond that I’m hoping we’ll see nerve-electronic interfaces for implants, I’m talking human 2.0!
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I love riding bikes and traveling, I’ve ridden beat up old air-cooled bikes around Europe more times than I care to count, been to Sahara on one as well.
What was your dream job as a child?
I can’t remember when my dream job transitioned from becoming an indian to a hacker, but the latter stuck.
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Given that I have access to a computer it kind of feels like I already do.
