Hi, I am a computational synthetic biology researcher with a PhD in Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence, currently at MIT.

I am passionate about artificial life, genotype to phenotype mappings, evolutionary computation, cell simulation, bio-inspired control systems, robotics, and the emergence of complex morphologies and behavior - in nature and in a lab. I enjoy simulating things in software, but I also love building stuff.

My goal is to study, abstract, and recontextualize the mechanisms behind emergence and self-organization, some of the most defining and fascinating properties of living systems. So far, my research has focused on using machine learning to untangle both the physics and behavior of cells, from the cell-cycle to the evolutionary timescale.
