I've always had a deep curiosity about nature; about how things are, and about how things work. 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).
My interest in complex systems soon led me to read about cognition, artificial intelligence, embodied cognition, and so on. The natural link with my biophysics studies were artificial neural network models, which resulted in my postdoc studies at the IT University of Copenhagen with Sebastian Risi.
Finally, at Copenhagen I developed my skills as a data analyst, which was my route back home, to work with the young and extremely talented team of Quantum Business Analytics.
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.
