I'm a scientist who's passionate about understanding the origins of Life. I use tools from complex systems science to answer fundamental questions in Astrobiology. I'm currently a post doctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow, working in Professor Lee Cronin's lab. I have a PhD in Physics from Arizona State University. My disseration "On the Origin of the Living State," was done under the supervision of Professor Sara Walker. I also have an undergraduate degree in Physics from San Francisco State University.
