Jay Jesús Molino was born in Panama in 1985. He received a bachelor's degree in 2007 from John Brown University and his Ph.D. from the University of Tokyo in 2014. He then conducted research at the Daiguji Laboratory of Thermal Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Tokyo, as a postdoctoral researcher. Since 2016 he became Professor of Physics at the Specialized University of the Americas in Panama since 2016. Dr. Molino's research collaborations focus on micro/nanocontainer research, interfacial processes, polymer physics, biomolecules, biological rheology and applied research in medical engineering and social dynamics. His work encompasses the understanding of self-assembled structures, the development of analytical theories and, more recently, computational simulations, applied to a wide range of systems. Dr. Molino's work has aided in the development of chemical data relevant to manufacturing processes. Furthermore, recently, together with other colleagues, he is working to find solutions to mitigate the impact and proliferation of SARS-CoV-2 and other diseases. He is currently dean of the Faculty of Biosciences and Public Health at the Specialized University of the Americas, and a senior member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMBS). In addition to his research activities, Dr. Molino is a strong advocate for the democratization of science and technology and the off-grid development of Panama's most vulnerable communities.
