I'm a researcher at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. I love to do yoga, take dancing classes (samba, salsa, anything that makes me sweat!), read science books, and just enjoy the feeling on sun on my skin. I am more on the quiet side until I meet someone--then I tend to be silly, smile often, and make jokes. I adore music of all types--my father raised me listening to Brazilian, Indian, Arabic, African, and Latin music, and I will love anything with a strong drum beat.
