" 9/11 was pretty much the 9/11 of the falafel market"
I am originally from Napoli in Italy, but spent part of my
childhood in northern France. For the last 5 years I have been
living in California (near San Francisco) and I loved it.
I love to travel and one of the things I like the most about my job
as an academic is that I am not tied to a particular place and can
move quite frequently and freely; after all, science and knowledge
travel pretty easily.
I have been living in Sydney for a year now and I am loving this
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After obtaining a PhD in Economics I've moved to Sydney to start a
new chapter of my life. I am very excited about Sydney and
Australia in general. I am new to this online dating thing, but
would like to see it as an opportunity to meet new people down
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing Table Tennis
Watching soccer and NBA
Differentiating under the integral sign
Observing people (not in a creepy way)
Making movie and TV references
Remembering useless details
To be fair, here are also some things I am not good at:
Smiling in pictures
Waiting in line
Waiting in general
Solving non-linear differential equations
Driving (although people tell me that if you can drive in Napoli,
then you can pretty much drive everywhere...)

Books: unfortunately I have not read much lately (I do not think
academic articles count; otherwise, I read 5-6 of them per day).
But The Name of the Rose and Les Miserables are two timeless
masterpieces. I like books about history (and history in general).

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not much of a clubbing guy. I'd rather eat dinner out at nice and
fancy place (kind of a foodie), watch a movie at home or talk with
friends about life until 3 am while drinking wine (or guinness).
