I have artistic tendencies, which is a nice way of saying my logic is somewhat fuzzy. I also strive to find the fun side of things, as it helps maintain my balance while doing research into such a serious disease. I look forward to meeting and collaborating with all of you, as I think we all have important things to contribute to the advancement of science, but that working together, we can really make a difference in the world.
Curious about the cosmos? Intrigued by evolution? Or simply wondering why that beer tastes as good as it does? Your questions have answers, and we aim to bring you the brilliant minds who have found them. We interview scientists once a month, usually at the New World Brewery in Ybor City (Tampa FL, USA).

I have travelled, I’ve had no complaints from bosses and friends and I have a PhD from one of the best universities in the world.
I have the ability to think abstractly. This is my main feature :P. It is easy for me to see the gray areas and the blurred lines. I’m also a planer and enjoy structure and order with a dash of spontaneity. I’m an introverted thinker but an extroverted feeler. this means I need plenty of time to ponder a question and organize my thoughts into words.
I sometimes struggle with social norms and, because I find it difficult to put my thoughts into words, I’m uncomfortable being in situations where I have to interact in a spontaneous manner (such as meeting someone new), but I always try my best hoping it’ll be enough.
I have rarely been at complete peace with myself, but I have often feel happiest and most fulfilled when making models to help others understand their problems, be it scientific, artistic, social or personal.
My passions are coffee, red wine and watching films. Lots of films.
