About me:

Bio-engineer at the prehistory 30 years ago, I PhD recently on the opposite scale: the World's ecology and sustainable development indicators.

I find Foldit inspiring for the research process and it's link with development and what we call "technological lock in" in History: one step back, 2 steps forwards can help humanity to go out of the current unsustainable high carbon societies lock-in.

From the game point of view, I like evolving and scripting in order to learn what is a beautiful protein.
