I was interested by topographical surfaces on a large scale and how they encouraged different settlement patterns based on its ridges and valleys and also the effect of human movement and natural processes, such as erosion, on these landscapes. Beyond the surface, I was also fascinated by the phenomenon of quorum sensing, a process by which bioluminescent bacteria decide when to illuminate large swaths, how bacterial biofilms form, and how new bee and ants colony locations are decided.
