I am a theoretical physicist at the Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics at Leiden University.
My research primarily focuses on everything to do with early universe cosmology and related aspects of particle physics phenomenology. However, I’m also interested in how models of reality nest together with seamless consistency, both intuitively and operationally. The primary toolkit for physicists to understand this is known as the renormalization group, and I’ve been spending a lot of time recently thinking about real space renormalization techniques, especially applied to networks — the prototypical model abstraction of all relational systems. If you’re interested in finding out more about my research, my occasionally updated professional webpage can be found here.
I also sometimes write articles, and I also occasionally blog random musings on various topics related to anything that concerns me, primarily focusing on what I know best — my science, but occasionally veering into other matters that move me enough to write about them.
