About

I hold a Ph.D. in theoretical physics (from the Niels Bohr Institute, also educated at MIT and Harvard University) and my work has mainly concentrated on string theory; and recently, various aspects of Ricci flows. I’m currently working on various geometrical aspects of proteins (e.g. collagen) and DNA — and rope. I’m currently employed at Technical University of Denmark.
