Hey, I’m Tobias!

After having spent the first 19 years of my life in a small village in the southwest of Germany, I've moved to Berlin for my undergraduate studies and then to London for my Masters and PhD. Recently, I've crossed the Atlantic and I now live in Cambridge, MA where I've just started a PostDoc at MIT in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department.

I like to think of myself as a combination of some of the positive stereotypical German characteristics (such as being considerate and reliable) plus humour and a lack of interest in meat (often not the first associations that spring to mind when thinking about Germans :) ). I'm pretty excited about doing research but also like to do a lot of other things such as doing sports (tennis, beach volleyball, surfing, cycling, climbing), going to concerts, playing guitar, etc.

I guess that's it - AirBnB suggests I shall tell you about my life motto but I'm not sure whether I've lived long enough to already have one. I like Woody Allen's life motto though: "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying." I'll keep you posted in case I come up with a nice one myself :)
