My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a laid back, calm person with a strong sense of justice and a desire to do as much good for the world as I can. I am very liberal, and I like to question just about everything, but especially my own beliefs.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently in graduate school in physics working towards a PhD. But I also like to learn about all sorts of other things, and I am always trying to find out something new. I also do political volunteering for Democrats and progressive causes!
The first things people usually notice about me
I suspect my hair! Though I have been told I have a charming accent on occasion, though I have never heard it myself.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a philosophy degree so far too much:

What the best ethical system is, and what it means for something to be right.

Whether or not it is possible to have a protagonist who is truly a Nietzchen Ubermensch in a novel.

How to weed out racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. from our culture and the society at large, but also from my own behaviours.

How amazing Joss Whedon's shows are.

Elections, candidates, issues, practically anything political(and anything politically practicable)

Coming up with new puns!
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie, or reading a book and having tea or perhaps a glass of wine. Perhaps playing a board game with friends! Or sometimes I am in the lab!
You should message me if
You like to talk about philosophy and politics, and love discussing books over coffee.
