Please see for research areas, CV, publications.

I am a researcher (but will always consider myself a student) interested in all science, and especially in these fields:

  • General relativity.

  • Quantum theory and statistical mechanics.

  • Continuum thermomechanics, including subfields such as fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and particle mechanics.

  • Bayesian probability theory and decision theory, including machine learning and statistics, especially for medical applications.

  • Differential, convex, affine geometry and Peano spaces.

  • Formal logic and constructive (computable) analysis.

  • Quantization of Julio Iglesias.

  • History of science and epistemology.
