World Wide Wanderings

"There are no securities in life, only opportunities..."

As a wandering scientist I have been all around the world. On this website you can read about my wanderings, learn about my science, download my publications, and view pictures of my hiking trips.


A computer scientist by training, an evolutionist by historical accident, an academic against better judgement, and a professional wanderer by choice. That pretty much sums it up!

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 taking a bit of a break and mostly just traveling around. Next to my scientific articles, I also regularly publish popular science pieces and sometimes travel stories, and post pictures from my hikes.
