World Wide Wanderings

"There are no securities in life, only opportunities..."

As a wandering scientist I have been all around the world. On this website you can follow my wanderings, learn about my research, read my publications, and view pictures from my hiking trips.


A computer scientist by training, an evolutionist by historical accident, an academic against better judgement, and a professional wanderer by choice. That pretty much sums it up!

After spending most of my career as a (relatively independent) scientist working on various short-term research, computing, and teaching projects all over the world, I am currently taking a bit of a break from academia. While trying to figure out where to take my life next, I am doing some writing and putting more focus on my outdoor photography. Next to my scientific articles, I've also published several popular science pieces, and posted pictures from my hiking trips.

I travel. I hike. I shoot.
