I work at the interface of physics and philosophy aiming to developp a radically integrated understanding of life, cognition, and culture under the physics of self-organizing, “creative” systems. I seek to discover why particular systems create meaning, how to represent that process mathematically / computationnally, and what it means for the evolution of the universe and of human societies. I am currently employed as a PhD student working on the co-evolution of the human mind and material culture under the supervision of Andy Clark and Chris Buckley.
I’m also a coordinator for Kairos Research, participative research & scientific mediation collective which focuses on buildingsituated knowledge for us to navigate ongoing socio-historical dynamics. We do so by synthesing pre-existent complexity-oriented approaches to social sciences, but also by developping a political epistemology that is thoroughly grounded on the dynamics of living and cognitive systems. We also aim to build a research-action cooperative tmandated to enact governance systems and actors network that can navigate real world complexity and withstand the constraints of the Anthropocene.
I have a broader commitment to reveal what’s below sensible reality and beyond the means of our linguistic grasp. This is why I’m interested in various ways to convey meaning without the need for formal language, from (classical) graphical design to creative ventures. I am especially interested in exploring the ethics of impermanence through graphism and fiction. I write stories exploring how actors struggling to impose meaning onto a shifting and ultimately inaccessible reality, and how this process ultimately shapes the evolution of human societies.
