For this reason, I decided to study physics (after considering biology and engineering) and later on I specialized 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 among simple agents (think of the amazing behaviour of ant colonies). 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 global 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 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 can learn more about this in The Astronomy Corner tab.
