About gansbags:
A physicist and computational scientist by training and started exploring biological systems from my PhD days. My PhD research involved modeling of biological systems as complex networks. Specifically, I modeled protein structures as complex networks of interacting residues and discovered that protein structures are characterized by "assortative mixing". Apart from biological systems, I in general interested in complex systems and complex networks modeling. After working in the filed of computational neuroscience for a while, I am back to modeling protein structures.
