  • Biography

    I've been trying to decide whether I'm a theoretical physicist (BSc, Aristotle U 1998) or an applied mathematician (PhD, Boston U 2005) for over twenty years. While on it, I inadvertently developed a vibrant and lasting interest in the Life Sciences. I'm particularly intrigued by the absence of tractable, quantitative models for life phenomena - to put it bluntly, by the messiness of life as reflected in model equivocality.

    Having been trained and employed within academia, I eventually resigned a tenured position in U Twente to experience field reality first-hand. I am currently with the Central Veterinary Institute of Wageningen UR, building models for animal diseases and fitting them to data. When not working, I'm either reading up on statistics and probability or preach the dawn of an era of interdisciplinarity for applied mathematics.
