Pilar Cossio joined the Center for Computational Mathematics in April 2021 as the Research Scientist and Project Leader for Structural and Molecular Biophysics (SMB). Previously, Cossio was Max Planck Tandem Group Leader associated with the University of Antioquia (Colombia) and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics (Germany). She also has held postdoctoral positions at the National Institute of Health (NIH, USA) and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics. Cossio focuses on the development of mathematical and computational methods to characterize proteins’ structures and dynamics from cryo-electron microscopy, single-molecule spectroscopy and biomolecular simulations. Cossio holds a Ph.D. in Physics and Chemistry of Biological Systems from the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Italy and a B.S. in Physics from the University of Antioquia.
