From Brazil, I've moved to Germany to study neurosciences. In 2010 I founded Open Neuroscience ( with the hope to make neurosciences more accessible across the globe.

Going deeper and deeper into the use of open source technologies for science and education, in 2013 I started a collaboration with TReND in Africa ( and in 2015 I became one of the editors of the Open source toolkit Channel of PLOS (

My latest project is Prometheus Science (, a startup dedicated to bringing open source scientific equipment to the masses.

Jesús J. Ballesteros Carrasco, PhD.

Born in Spain, where I completed my studies in Biology and obtained my PhD in Neuroscience. I've been working mainly within the hippocampal electrophysiology field, first on in vitro models and later on in vivo.

As postdoc in Germany, I gained deep experience with freely-behaving single photon imaging and field potential recordings. 

I'm about to start a new period working with non-human primates, at the MGH in Boston, MA.
