A computer scientist by training, an evolutionist by historical accident, an academic against better judgement, and a professional wanderer by choice.

As a graduate student I spent several years at the Santa Fe Institute (SFI), which largely shaped my scientific outlook. After obtaining a Ph.D. in computer science, I worked on many short-term research, computing, and teaching projects all over the world. Currently I am just traveling around a bit, and will be looking for a new adventure sometime soon. Next to my scientific articles, I also regularly publish popular science pieces and travel stories, and post pictures from my hikes.
