Hi! I'm a female research scientist in the life sciences.
I work intensively during the day, with lots of artistic, scientific, and business-related hobbies on the side, and travel frequently for work and pleasure.
My favourite things are books (popular science, history, biographies, global issues), programming (Matlab, HTML), web and graphic design, art (drawing with pen and paper, figure drawing, visiting galleries), museums, and recently, film making. I'm opinionated when it comes to subjects I know enough about, and curious when it comes to unfamiliar topics.
Have spent a good bit of time in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Portugal, the US, China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, and have made brief visits to many other countries. I love all these places, England in particular, and can offer advice on visiting Newcastle, the Northeast, and beyond, whether you're here for work or leisure.
