After, he joined the group of Prof. Oliver Stegle at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany (2018-2021).

His research is focused on the development of computational tools to answer biological questions within different subfields in bioinformatics. He mainly focuses in Structural Bioinformatics and Single Cell Multiomics data. 

In addition to his research, Gonzalo has been involved in different organizations that promote bioinformatics at the international level. In 2012, Gonzalo co-founded the ISCB Regional Student Group (RSG) Argentina. After serving at different positions he currently is the ISCB Student Council Board of Directors Representative. At the BSC Gonzalo collaborates with the Bioinfo4Women initiative.
