About Me

A modern universalist, I work in the intersection between biology, CS, and math.

  • Goal: understand biological evolutionary strategies at the molecular level.
  • Applied goal: if you can understand their game we will be able to understand their impact on health, the environment, and the economy.

With some partners founded the first biotechnology and SysBio Research Group at UTP, called "GIBBS". I am also interested in the dialogue between science & humanities, and how can generate better and deeper solutions to fundamentals problems.
