My background includes philosophy, genetics, and cell biology. I have an interest in an approach, represented through mathematical language, to complexity that works from first principles. I see rigour as something that is better to apply in retrospect, not prospectively, to research. Instead I favour a creative approach, which I term "natural intelligence". When I understand something, it occurs through a process of inspiration and I have obtained serendipitous results that require the development of explanatory principles which are absent from mainstream biological research. It seems to me that, outside of a few institutes in the ivy league, the idea of managed discovery is at odds with such a goal. My current situation is of building up a theoretical construct then relating it to previous examples.
