My self-summary
I'm originally from Buenos Aires (Argentina). Lived 5 years in Houston, and almost 3 in Northern Virginia. In Argentina I studied electrical engineering but in the last few semesters I felt that I was not enjoying it much. I got lucky to meet a professor who introduce me to Neuroscience, so after few attempts I landed in Texas where I did my phd.
Doing science takes most of my time, not only because of work, but also because I enjoy everything that has to do to understand the world like math, physics, biology, economy, sociology, philosophy, astronomy and art and music I believe!
And as important to that it is to get to know interesting people, with original ways of approaching living, interesting and refreshing ideas, cool stories to tell, and good and positive attitude.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a super cool research institute where I get to measure the activity of many individual neurons to try to understand what brain circuits do! Also sometimes we develop or apply some of the latest technologies, so its thrilling to feel how quickly we are moving towards understanding more and more about the brain.
Then from time to time to travel to conferences to chat with bright people over some beers.
I moved to Arlington from Ashburn a year ago, so Im also trying to explore the Virginia/DC/Maryland area.
I’m really good at
Listening to my friends, giving advice, making them look at the positive side of things or when it is difficult to try to show them how to be pragmatic in solving their problems.
Making and maintaining long friendships.
Learning new stuff (although not much languages or getting the right pronunciation).
Introducing friends to friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile often and Im pretty relaxed.
Not difficult to me to find someone that knows someone you know.
I need coffee as cars need gas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: 1984, Foundation series (Asimov), Brave New World, Fictions (Borges), 100 years of solitude (Garcia Marquez), On Heroes and Tumbs (Sabato), Thus spoke Zaratustra, Nietzsche and the vicious circle, Steppenwolf (Hesse).
Six things I could never do without
