As a wandering scientist I have been all around the world, and on this website you can read a bit about my global endeavors and adventures. Below is a quick overview of what is contained in these pages. More detailed information is available by clicking on the menu buttons on the left. And please don't hesitate to contact me directly with any inquiries, suggestions, or just to say hello!
Professional & lectures
A computer scientist by training, I have worked on a wide variety of research and computing projects. Most of my work is somehow related to evolution, but primarily from a computational point of view. I always enjoy talking about these topics, whether informally over a beer or more formally as a seminar or special lectures. I also like to use my computational skills for small consultancy projects in business or R&D. Always looking out for new and exciting projects...
I try to balance my professional life with my other big passions: travel and the outdoors. I usually spend a large part of my free time going on hiking trips, and in between jobs I regularly take several months to just travel around somewhere. When I'm not on the road, in the mountains, or behind the computer, I fill my time with reading, listening music, or a bit of drawing.
Over the past 10+ years I have used my professional skills to go around the world. As a consequence I have worked, lived, and traveled in all continents (except Antarctica). I got used, and perhaps even addicted, to living out of a backpack, and I hope to continue my global explorations in the future!
