With backgrounds in math, computer science, philosophy and epistemology, I think of myself as a 'computational natural scientist' or an 'information-theoretical biologist' (Greg Chaitin described me as a "new kind of practical theoretician").
I currently co-lead the Information Dynamics Lab and I am the head of the Algorithmic Nature Group, the lab behind the Online Algorithmic Complexity Calculator. Previously, I was a Research Associate at the Behavioural and Evolutionary Theory Lab at the University of Sheffield before joining the University of Oxford as a Senior Researcher (faculty member) in the Department of Computer Science. I am also the Editor of the journal Complex Systems, the first journal in the field.
My past and current affiliations are here and my research interests and contributions here.
