|I started my career as an entomologist and ecologist, but soon realized that I have to answer more fundamental questioins: what is life, how it evolves, learns, and functions. Thus I got involved in the Research Group on Theoretical Biology at Moscow State University, and started publishing theoretical papers. Later I organized a seminar and two conferences on Biosemiotics, which is a synthesis of biology and semiotics, a theory on signs and meanings. Since 2002, I work in molecular biology and bioinformatics, and this new field helped me to advance further in the area of theoretical biology and biosemiotics.|
