My current research interests in biology are altruism and cooperation, speciation, and imprinting; and in computer science are No-Free-Lunch theorems, evolutionary algorithms and image binarization.

I take interesting evolutionary patterns observed in nature and develop models to understand their plausible underlying mechanisms. My approaches include both numerical and analytical modeling. In fact, it is usually the case that the best way to truly understand a system is to use a mixture of both.

It is my belief that models in both, mathematics/computer science and evolutionary biology can be boosted with an interdisciplinary approach. I consider myself fortunate for having the opportunity to work precisely in this interface of disciplines.
