I Work in academia, which means going to many scientific conference in obscure places and meeting people from all over the world. This what makes my job so enjoyable and fun.
In my spare time I like to combine between Salsa dancing, yoga, gym, and reading. From time to time and when I have the money for it, I also like to snowboard and scuba dive.
If you like to move around, and not sit all day, then we could have a chance together.
Books: There are so many of them, but the one that most influenced is "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!". An autobiography of the noble laureate in physics, Richard Feynman.
I really like vegetarian dishes with a lot of spices, in other words I love Indian food.
