About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT ME

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.

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.

PHILOSOPHY

Know where your target is.
Then aim unflinchingly.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

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.

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

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).
