My research interests are mainly in the intersection of complex systems and cognitive science, theoretical biology, artificial life and social modeling.

Further academic interests include adaptive and enactive user-interfaces as well as complex networks for natural resources management and transport.

My principal hobby is music (theory and practice). I play the guitar --anybody for a jam?

Current projects:

Impulsive behavioral and social regulation mechanisms:
Imitation, attraction, anxiety, play, the moods etc.

Cells, insects and carnivores with representations

Fungus eaters

Cognitive modeling for math puzzles

Applied cultural modeling

Graphical tools for agent-based simulation and modeling

Web services design as artificial biology

And I am also trying to learn to play some mandolin

Selected publications
