I was born in the UK and lived there until I was 20. I did all my undergraduate and masters studies in the UK. I moved ot Sweden to do a doctorate in atmospheric sciences in 2001. I now work at the University of Toronto as a post doc in a similar area to my PhD. My major interests are sports, mainly ice hockey, but also a big fan of baseball, basketball, and rugby. I also have a private pilots license as I am very much into aviation.
