I am a theoretical physicist fascinated by the principles underlying information processing and learning in living systems. The research topics I am currently focusing on are strategies of biological organisms to minimize risk in complex environments, and the development of analysis methods to reveal hidden low-dimensional structures in data of large biological networks such a neuron populations. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania in the group of Prof. Vijay Balasubramanian.

Before I became interested in the physics of living systems, I worked on research problems in String Theory and Gravitational Physics.
