For this reason I decided to study physics (after considering biology and engineering) and later on a masters degree in biophysics.
Physics was arguably the science of the 20th century, and I believe the 21st will belong to biology, which will profit from the new tools the computer era is providing. I am specially interested in so-called complex systems, where complexity emerges from the interactions amongst simple agents. Think of the amazing behaviour of ant colonies, for example. A remarkable challenge we need to address in this field is the brain, in particular the human brain. Although the behaviour of a single neuron is rather well understood nowadays, the resulting properties of the system—conscience, decision making, etc.—still remain a mystery.
My curiosity about nature also found its way into my spare time. Apart from reading, music and such, I am also interested in astronomy. When I joined the university I became a member of the astronomy club, Antares, of which I was president for two years. You have a little more information about astronomy in general and also some of the activities Antares has been doing in The Astronomy Corner tab.
I hope you find what you are looking for here, otherwise, please do contact me and I'll be glad to attend you.
Thanks for stopping by!
