Research interests: prebiotic chemistry, evolutionary biochemistry and complex systems science (read more).
I investigate the emergence of primitive biochemistry from simple environmental inputs available on the early Earth.
Specifically, I study complex chemical reaction networks which may have been precursors to life’s metabolic pathways (aka: protometabolism). Recently, I have set out to build experimental setups mimicking early Earth conditions for out-of-equilibrium protometabolic chemistry. I also study the chemical evolution of cofactors in the origin of life context.
