Originally from India, I call Dresden, Germany, my home now. I have lived and worked there for the last 7 years. By profession, I am a scientist, and I study evolution from a molecular biology perspective.
Books, movies and music fill up a lot of my time, when I am not out walking along the river or in the forest. My taste in music is quite diverse, and ranges all the way from Bach and Pärt, to the XX and Massive Attack. My movie tastes tend towards art-house cinema, and hollywood blockbusters are certainly not my thing.
I like to travel, but I prefer not to do the tourist attraction rounds kind of travel, I like to stay at a place for a few days, soak in the place and feel everyday life there. If asked to pick my favorite three travel destinations, I'd say Haifa in Israel, Northern Italy and Lisbon.
