Sometimes I wish I was a dinosaur, but alas, I am but a lowly scientist. I spend much of my time in a research laboratory growing cells and looking through microscopes.
I am a very outgoing introvert, which expresses itself in funny ways. I require a lot of time to myself to recharge but I also need social interaction on a regular basis or I get pretty unhappy. My personality type is INTP and I've found the assessment to be pretty accurate.
I'm extremely enthusiastic, which can be a double-edged sword. While it's one of my favorite personality traits it can have the tendency to get me in trouble. I'm a go-getter and fairly ambitious – I'm shooting for an MD, if not an MD/PhD.
This description is making me seem a little more intense than I actually am: I'm usually quite happy and relaxed. I love my job doing science, I do my best to surround myself with awesome people, and I am fully aware that even when I'm down-in-the-dumps I have it really good. My worldview is this really weird blend of idealism and existential nihilism. The universe is a physics simulation and I'm gonna make the most of it.
In my spare time I love to cook, read, and spend time with friends. I also watch way too much TV – I can't help it, I love stories and episodic serialized dramas are so compelling.
My life has been hectic lately. After finishing my BSc. in Biology at McGill, I've moved home, studied for the MCATs, and moved to Boston for a position at BU. Now I've landed a job at Stanford that I couldn't turn down. This is the craziest roller coaster I've ever been on.
I'm looking to meet interesting people for just about any facet of interaction. Lately I've been enjoying dating and also have openings for both friends and archenemies.
