I am a 40 year old scientist from Giessen in Germany. Most of my time I spent on doing basic reserach on bacteria that live in water. My free time I spet with my wife (who is also a scientsit) and my son Luca. We go out by bike, to public swimming areas and we take care of our three horses. Frequently, we visit other cities - often when we go to meet other scientsits on conferences. I work a lot, but I am also intersted in travelling to other contries and cities around the world and to meet intersting people.
