Welcome to the personal web of Francisco Camas

Myself. Portrait made by my brother Fernando Camas at age 6.
Myself. Portrait made by my brother Fernando Camas at age 6.

Nowadays, I'm a Professor of Harmony at the Music Conservatory "Victoria de los Ángeles" in Madrid. My recent professional experience includes a postdoctoral stay as a researcher in the fields of Systems Biology and Genomics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT. I'm from the city of San Fernando (close to Cadiz, in South Spain).

 

My CV is the perfect example of a non-linear career path: before being a scientist that moved from Theoretical Physics to Systems Biology, I was a musician (clarinet professor and composer). And although I'm again making a living from Music, I still keep one foot in Science. A permanent dychotomy between Music and Science -sometimes synergistic, sometimes destructive- defines exactly what I am.
