When not pondering what a better world would look like, or having some silly thoughts on creating a self-sufficient community on a floating island, I try my hand at doing some science.
My interests lies between some basic questions in physics and mathematical modeling, and looking at the complicated living world, which is full of many living beings, both large and small. Not so much humans though, we seem to have enough of us taking care of us.
