Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.- Bertrand Russell -

I am a theoretical physicist and computer scientist. I am interested in fundamental questions at the intersection of physics, philosophy, mathematics, and computation. I have worked on quantum gravity and cosmology at ICTP, CP3, and Oxford and on applied AI at the Danish Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS). You can find an overview of my research here.

I only ever truly understand something if I can explain it to a non-expert. This notion guides my learning process, as well as the desire to make specialized knowledge accessible to everyone. I offer whatever insight I gather to the interested layman, with the understanding that science, just like any other human endeavour, belongs to the people. I collect my notes on science and math here. Everything else (personal musings, philosophical extrapolations, political commentary, etc.) goes in the fodder.

I try to engage with social issues as much as I can. Of the three passions mentioned above, it is the last one that overwhelmingly occupies my thoughts as of late. I keep track of the Doomsday Clock here. Believing that most of humanity's problems stem from the common root of coercive authority, I support the popular struggle for a fully democratic and decentralized society.
