I am an assistant professor. I often travel to do research in archives. Most of my travelling involves work so I like to stay somewhere with a kitchen so that I can cook my own meaIs. I don't tend to hang out all day in the places where I stay but I do like to have some home-feeling comfort when I get home from work at the end of the day! I like to attend plays and sports games (particularly soccer) when I am in a new city. I often buy tickets to local soccer matches and cheer on the home team. I also try to join up with running clubs in the town where I am staying so that I can keep up my marathon training schedule even when I travel. I speak English and French fluently but my ASL is still rusty (I'm learning). I can't live without: my computer, my running shoes, greek yogurt, real neapolitan pizza, and hot water showers.
