About Me


More learning, more experiences, I am a sponge (except with a central nervous system).


Most of my CS experience has been based in Sofia, Bulgaria, the best CS community. I've since moved to Rochester, NY (2012) to complete a PhD in neuroscience.

Let's talk about it in person! I feel like I've already lived a dozen lives. I am learning to take the best from all of them.

CS is a huge part of my life, hosting more than 100 members in Sofia and surfing quite a lot, too.

I'm a researcher and focus on neuro-physiology in the frame of perception and cognition. I'm a thinker but at the same time believe that actions are more important than thoughts so I admire what people *do*, not what they think. Woolgathering is a rarity for me.

Some of my older work Cognitive Science

I like traveling around Bulgaria and taking photographs. Here is a map of the towns and villages I've shot.

Since 2012 I've taken a break from CS and in that time, it has changed a lot. But it was a very big part of my days and has left uncountable memories.


Know where your target is. Then aim unflinchingly.

THANK YOU SOFIA! -- my farewell party (May-2012)

I'm not as active as I used to be, primarily because I am dedicated to my studies. I do, however, still enjoy hosting and surfing. I planned a lot of events in Europe when I lived there.

Music, Movies & Books

Most read and re-read books: Well, actually I mostly read journal articles. But this is a secret. Currently reading a book on Neurology and Philosophy and a book about Bulgarian History. Also, I've read and enjoyed most of Khalil Gibran's works.

Most watched movies: I don't watch many movies. But I'd like to. :)

Music: Hmmm... I'm a big collector of music... Tough to choose. I don't like music that is not made my musical instruments and musicians who play them. Bring me some music from your country!!

For Couch Request bonus points, write the next line to any of these songs...

1) "She looks like the real thing, she tastes like the real thing..." 2) "Y una tarde de abril, la intentaron trasladar al manicomio... 3) "so if you would just cast off your doubt, then your lips would answer for you...

Teach, Learn, Share

If an Atom were enlarged to the size of a football stadium the nucleus would only be the size of a pea while the first electron cloud would circle the stadium. This means that more than 99% of an atom is empty space. It's nothing. Everything is made up of atoms. So everything is more than 99% nothing. That's right folks, everything is mostly nothing (or at least non-physical). So what's the big deal in allowing yourself to talk about "mind" being a non-physical part of the brain? Are not the holes in swiss cheese separate but connected to the cheese itself? Chew on that! (the cheese).
