I'm a PhD student in ecology and evolution studying environmental impacts on disease in lakes. I like reading, outdoors-y stuff, watching wild animals and playing with tame ones. I used to row and play women's rugby before I ran out of free time.
I'm pretty laid back and low-maintenance, and obviously on a budget since we graduate students don't get paid much (although more than I got paid when I worked as a zookeeper).
My favorite movies are mostly either edgy foreign/indie films (e.g., The Lives of Others, Monsoon Wedding, Brick) or mainstream high school teen feel-good dramas (e.g., 10 Things I Hate About You, The Easy A, Bend It Like Beckham).
My life motto is: "If you try to genuinely like most people, they'll probably like you back."
