šŸ‘‹ Iā€™m Markus Strasser. I research information storage and processing in biological systems with special interest in artificial life.

Previously I worked on biomedical literature search and knowledge discovery (with funding from Emergent Ventures), machine learning interpretability, no-code tools, browser extensions and bioinformatic automation at Oxford Nanopore. Before my engineering escapades I studied philosophy, some mathematics and later fine art with stints in Viennese and Prague Ateliers, the Barcelona Academy of Arts and Stanford.
