I am a theoretical biologist interested in three things common to all living systems: their growth, their form, and their capacity to transfer and process information.
I tend to believe that beyond the huge variety of biology there is only a limited number of ways in which biological systems grow, interact and process information. In my research I try to find them by addressing similar questions in different systems.
