I am passionate about biomathematics. I envision research in quantitative biology as a constant exchange of ideas between experts in quantitative fields (i.e. computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, statistics) and experts in biological sciences. This conversation enriches biology with the insight provided by quantitiative methods, and it enriches quantitiative fields with the demands of complex problems originated in biology. Joel Cohen put it succinctly and brilliantly: "mathematics is biology's next microscope, only better; biology is mathematics' next physics, only better".

I also believe that the most desirable level of achievement is that of a polymath. I try to reflect that ideal in my work.
