Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It seems with all my resent updates this section has become quite
massive. I hope you don't think I don't know the meaning of the
Well I am a Portuguese guy living in Oxford and doing a DPhil in
Cardiovascular Sciences. Yeah, I'm one of those crazy people/idiots
that choose science as a lifestyle. I do have weird working hours,
ranging from going to work only at lunch time and leaving only at
05:00. That doesn't happen very often though. I like to think my
career is important to me, but that's just because I have no talent
for any other line of work and science is quite competitive. I tend
to be somewhat sarcastic, but usually only with people I'm
I like to cook, I have mad skill to the point that my family asks
me to cook when I go home on vacations. Music is an important part
in my life, I like most genres but I have a soft spot for Rock (all
types). I always wanted to know how to play instruments, I did
manage to learn a bit of recorder, piano, Portuguese ukelele
(cavaquinho) and mandolin, but never really became good at any of
I'm somewhat of a fan of everything nerdy. I enjoy the occasional
visit to the board game cafe with friends to have a good and
relaxed afternoon, although playing Game of Thrones can get
I like reading a lot, unfortunately since the start of my DPhil I
have less and less chance to read things not related do my work.
See section below for book preferences.
I like to think I'm adventurous in many ways, I like trying new
things, be it food, music, or just general life experiences. I'm
still trying to convince someone to go skydiving with me.
I would say I'm looking for someone independent and intelligent,
who I can have good conversations with but who can also goof
around, as I do tend to be silly. Being a nerd would probably makes
us more compatible,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing a DPhil in Cardiovascular Science, and I'm also
collaborating for a website that aims to explain evolution research
in a simple way - www.evolutionupdate.com
if you are interested.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making myself sound very convincing, even though I may not have a
clue about what I'm talking about. Besides that, cooking, science,
and being average at many things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have all body parts which is good I suppose. If not that
then I guess realize that I'm a bit of an airhead. Ah and if I'm
wearing short sleeves, my tattoos.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, Eyes, Ears, Limbs, Mouth, Heart
Oh wait, I'm not supposed to take this literally.... Then I guess,
books, coffee, music, science, travelling...and...some source of
communication device I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science (this may be getting a bit repetitive, but it is my job).
Why some people are just so unreasonable. Random stuff that pops
into my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who knows, I like to keep an open mind
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think I have anything that private. I guess I do not share
everything about myself with a single person. There are a couple
that may be very close to knowing most things, but not all.
