I rather enjoy writing as a way to collect my own thoughts. As a scientist, it’s also the essence of how we communicate- through publication.

Here are some of the things that I’ve written, or contributed to  over time.

You’ll find some scientific articles, digests and think pieces.

Opinions are my own, and do not necessarily reflect those of my co-authors.
