For the past 11 years I have blogged for Science2.0 (formerly Scientific Blogging), and I have considered this site my true personal web page, too - the articles I have published here for over a decade are a much better representation of who I am, what I do, and of my personal expertise than anything else I can ever think of putting together in a web site.

However, I think that from a professional point of view addressing all inquiries and searches for my name to a blog, as good as this may be, is a questionable tactical choice, as there's people out there who consider blogs a waste of time, a nuisance, if not an annoying outlet of opinions, internal information, etcetera. So I begrudgingly decided the other day that I would create a professional web page to illustrate who I am, what I do, and what are my personal career accomplishments. The use case of such a site is to provide colleagues who may want to know in detail my research activities with a simple to use and easy to access place that collects everything they need to know about me, from the point of view of research.

The result of my efforts is visible at this address. If you are going to click around, be advised that the links to my CV do not work yet, as I am still working on those. Also, if you load the page from a smartphone the viewing experience will be somewhat worsened - I am working on that, too.

I am happy to hear your comments or suggestions, of course. But I do not plan to work a lot more on the design of the page; rather, I will be careful to update its contents as soon as new material appears. I am also likely to add a word cloud and a list of the most recent publications to the page, but not much more.
