I'm a Computational Scientist working for Continuum Analytics. I have PhD in Particle Physics from Oxford where I was working on one of the CERN experiments for 4 years. I now live in Syracuse NY where my wife is a professor. I've also got two young girls, and love the out of doors: hiking, climbing, skiing, canoeing, biking. I'm Canadian but haven't lived there in 15 years: since then it has been the UK, France, and the US. I use AirBnB all the time (I travel about a week a month), since I love staying in nice places and meeting new local people, rather than generic impersonal hotels.
