As a scientist I spend most of my time doing science. In my current research I study pluripotent stem cells, specifically the role of the multitasking protein SET/TAF1 in the early embryo.
Other topics I enjoy thinking about (in no particular order):
Evo-devo and how it can help us understand human evolution
High-throughput sequencing data and how to manipulate it
How LLMs could be useful for biology
Wang Huning and his influence on Chinese politics
Freud’s ‘Interpretation of Dreams’
Lacan’s idea of ‘unconscious’ as structured as a a language
The origins of language in humans
Genome organisation and how it regulates gene expression
