  • In this (late night) series, I explore how our mind works, how we make judgments and predictions, how we are prone to errors and biases, and then how to moderate these with a few concepts of statistics. Over ten episodes, the idea is to become more self-critical and value the pursuit of truth over "being right." In this second episode, I talk about the availability heuristic and how the news and movies we watch can skew our perception of reality and determine our fears (often irrationally).

Over 10 episodes, the idea is to become more self-critical and value the pursuit of truth over "being right." In this first episode, I begin by differentiating between intuitive and rational thinking. I then present the first heuristic: thinking by representativeness and how it can lead us to commit logical fallacies.

  • I love music. Every stage of my life had different genres and different ways of listening to music. In the 90’s it was an old Sony Walkman playing rock tapes. Today we can stream literally anything anywhere with Hi-Fi quality. The last decade has opened the doors for endless A.I. driven music exploration and, oh boy, am I grateful for that! From a rock and metal enthusiast (on my guitar I still play metal riffs), I slowly transitioned to a passion for electronic music, beginning with an interest in minimal Techno from the mid 90’s. Electronic music has virtually no limitations to the sounds employed, and talented musicians can stimulate the brain in unexpected ways. So today I want to share a playlist I have put together called “1 trip”. It is a mixture of genres, mainly sub-genres of techno and house, all under the umbrella of electronic. It is good for “tripping” in the literal sense of travelling or late-night driving, or in the more figurative definition of what I would define as a “meditative state” or “deep focus”. Play it in shuffle, and enjoy! (Link in bio). Headphones: @marshallheadphones Monitor II

  • In August 2019, while travelling back to London on my motorbike, I crossed the Alps from Italy to France via the Swiss passes of Gotthard, Furka and Grimsel. It took me about half day from Lake Maggiore in Italy to Dijion in France. I wore a GoPro on my helmet. On YouTube there is an extended 16 min version so that you can feel like you came along the journey! Watching this on a big screen makes me feel like I'm there again. LINK IN BIO.

  • Getting some fresh air in my @tommyhilfiger full look. 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tommy for donating T-shirts to healthcare workers at UCLH and also for donating to Feeding Britain, a UK charity supplying meals to those in need. 
Both causes are close to me because I have friends working at UCLH here in London, and through Feeding Britain I can donate to a food bus in my own neighbourhood. 
I’d like to remind everyone that sometimes people in our own backyard need help, and helping them not only is intrinsically good, it also improves the community around you. 
I have put the link to Feeding Britain in my bio should you decide to help, but wherever you are I am sure there are many such initiatives in your own neighbourhood which I invite you to research.
