My self-summary
I've got an interest in science (mostly physics but sometimes other fields as well) and like talking about it. Within physics, my main interests are in astrophysics, string theory, particle physics, relativity and quantum mechanics. If I talk a lot about the stars and the planets or the Large Hadron Collider then don't be surprised. Also, if anyone tries to argue with me about creation verses evolution, I can usually give many counter arguments to people who argue for creation and explain why evolution is the better explanation for human origins.

I've got a small circle of close friends, although I often mostly prefer to spend time alone than to go out with friends. I'm also intelligent, have a good sense of humour, logical and intellectual.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated with an MSc in astrophysics at the University of Johannesburg last year and am currently working as a research assistant at the physics department there. I'm also currently working on a PhD program although the topic isn't in astrophysics like my MSc was. I'm planning to start a career in academia doing research. Though my research is likely to focus on different areas of physics rather than just one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm interested in science, mainly physics, because I like understanding how nature works.

I like watching science fiction tv-shows, some examples include Battestar Galactica, the Stargate series, Caprica etc. I also watch Lost.

I also like watching science fiction movies, but there are some other genres as well like action, sometimes comedies are alright but it depends on the film. Among the movies I liked, I thought Avatar had beautiful scenery. I also thought Inception had interesting plotline and had interesting concepts such as time slowing down in dreams etc. But I like most science fiction movies.

Examples of books I like to read include Dune, some Dan Brown novels (the ones I've read are Angels and Demons, the Da Vinci Code and the Lost Symbol), the Lord of The Rings and some non-fiction books (mainly science).
You should message me if
You have similar interests as me and if you often like spending time alone but wouldn't mind the company of one other person. You don't necessarily need to have all of my interests, as long as you have few similar ones so that we can have some casual discussions on subjects that appeal to both of us.

Message me if you want someone to have an intelligent conversation with.
