I am looking for someone who never bores me, who challenges me intellectually, and who is open to pursuing something serious if there is really a spark. I am also just looking for new friends out here in my new home. Also, anyone who's gung ho about skiing Tahoe this winter. I miss living in Colorado where I could skip work on a powder day at a moment's notice.
My current title is "research physicist," which is ironic since my Ph.D. is in electrical engineering. Whether I try to get a tenure track professorship in the future remains to be seen, but it's definitely still in the cards.
