With backgrounds in mathematics, computer science, philosophy and epistemology, working on applications to computational biology, 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 co-lead the Information Dynamics Lab at the Karolinska Institute 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. My main research aim in a sentence is to develop methods and tools to reprogram living systems.
I am also the Editor of the journal Complex Systems, the first journal in the field founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987.
