Welcome to my website!

This little blog space is an experiment. The purpose of its existence is to document the evolution of ideas during my own learning and research career about the world we live in, where we came from, and the future we are traveling to together.

Within and between the words, it is my best hope that you find a little inspiration too! If so, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and write some comments, or write me an email, for which I will be delighted.

I am currently a postdoctorial researcher at MIT. My work is funded by the Simons Collaboration on the Origin of Life. Here I explore my deeply rooted interests to better understand how “life” works. For this I explore ancient records of life on Earth, as well as environments on ancient Mars.
