About Me

Currently a first-year psychology PhD student at Binghamton University. Over the course of last 8ish years, I have done quite a bit of traveling via couchsurfing and met a lot of amazing people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Due to the level of business that comes with being a PhD student, these days I mainly participate in coushsurfing by trying to promote CS spirit among the people I know.


Exploring new places, meeting people who have interesting stories to share, learning, doing research, figuring out how things work and why.
