What brought me here:
Simply put - I love studying and doing research. Here is what I like about the Bay Area: the cultural diversity, weather, and proximity to both the ocean and the mountains.
Outside of lab I love:
If I have free time outside of academics and money, I have many interests. Outdoorsy stuff: running, hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing, swimming, kayaking, tennis, table tennis… Other activities: learning to dance, drawing, music, singing (usually when no one is around), fixing things, cooking, dining out, volunteering, learning new languages and hobbies... It’s easier to list what I am NOT interested in.
