My self-summary
I apologize in advance for how rambly and stream of consciousness this is, but whatever:
I'm an NYC native by way of India and Minnesota. Something about that combination cancels out all possible accents..bummer. I am in grad school in Philly, in biophysics, and still pretty new to the city. I love what I do but always find a balance between work and life. I grew up mostly in Brooklyn, and am a huge fan of New York, but I'm loving Philadelphia so far. When I'm not studying or in lab, I love biking around town, running (hope to run the half marathon next year), going to the gym (I work out at 12th street), dancing, craft beers, trying new wines, expanding my cooking repertoire, and drinking whiskey. I have an affinity for disturbing books and watching creepy movies (am a huge Lynch fan), and frequent art museums. I love to travel (especially to New Orleans, the west coast, or Paris), and I've been all over. Bonus points if you can make me a well-made Sazerac.
What I’m doing with my life
I study molecules that change shapes. I'm interested in how parts of them communicate those changes with other parts.
I’m really good at
Improvisational cooking. And the subsequent eating. especially the eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't care.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books -- the sound and the fury, ginsberg, pale fire, all the king's men, stryer's biochemistry... i could go on for a while
movies -- wild strawberries, blue velvet, mulholland drive, inland empire (you might start noticing a trend), la cage aux folles, jodorowsky, kubrick, ...
music -- everything from stone roses to britney. with some beatles , pavement, and sonic youth thrown in.
food -- let's just say i'm pretty lucky i can fit through doors.
Six things I could never do without
a bike, spicy food, wine, a gym membership, netflix, and a French press
I spend a lot of time thinking about
proteins and going places i haven't been. also how we're plummeting towards a global climate crisis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in lab or bleeding gin.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
when i was a kid, when i got bored in class, i used to doodle maps of imaginary cities that i would design. i'm still fascinated by the organizational principles of a city -- even more so now that i've lived in and visited many different kinds of cities. If I had more time, I'd read more about urban planning and architecture in general. One day.

Also, I'm 25 and don't have a driver's license. I'm a product of an urban upbringing :)
You should message me if
you like nerds, and have the balls to do so.
