About

I'm a postdoc with a passion for restoring and substituting the senses.

My profile picture is M.C. Escher's Vlinders (1950). It is one of his works with tessellations, in which certain shapes fill up the entire surface. It is combined with another important theme in his oeuvre, namely transformation, where one shape slowly evolves into the next. Escher's works are illusionary master pieces that trick our visual systems in perceiving things that cannot be.


Behind the great achievements of a Gauss or an Einstein is in all cases a life devoted to contemplation, curiosity, collaboration and, perhaps most of all, hard work.
(Burrell, D. Sci Am, September 2015).


For what it's worth: My name is not Alice, my last name starts with an 'S', I'm a bloke and, like Escher, I just like to toy with people's perceptions :) Just say 'AliceD' out loud and likely you'll get some acid associations
