Hi, I'm Nicole :)
I'm doing my PhD in Geochemistry and I work casually as an academic at Macquarie University in Sydney.
My hobbies include dancing (salsa, bachata, hip hop and swing), enjoying good food (vegetarian), travelling and exploring (I love walking/jogging around a neighbourhood to get to know all its nooks and hidden treasures), keeping fit, and spending time with my boyfriend and friends.
My favourite books and movies are generally non-fiction types. I love documentaries, and at the moment I'm a bit obsessed with urban sociology!
I love just about everything Spanish! The food, the music, and the language. I'm trying to become fluent, but it's a slow process!
I have travelled so far to Thailand, Colombia, Turkey and Greece. The next place on my list is the US - specifically San Francisco and New York in June/July this year! My boyfriend is working in San Fran for a few months so I'm going over to visit him and explore. After my PhD I'm hoping to move to San Fran with the BF to do postdoctoral work at Berkley or Stanford. Fingers crossed!
Also, I really love rabbits. A ridiculous amount.
