Join Couchsurfing to see Karl’s full profile.
I like to explore. Ask me which thing I want and I’ll say both. Order the same food as me in a restaurant and I’ll change my order. Give me a path and I’ll see where it goes.
On a regular basis, I'm a physics graduate student. My research topic is spin polarized electrons. Specifically, I'm engineering a novel source of spin polarized electrons and will use that to do a collision experiment with chiral molecules for my PhD.
Being a graduate student means that I don't have oodles of free time. There's a chance we won't see each other much if you're staying with me. With that said, I make an effort to share a meal, activity suggestions, and a game with all guests. If you're just looking for a place to sleep, feel free to send a request.
My roommate is also on couchsurfing, here's a link to his profile: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/william-newman-2
If you're feeling extra generous, send a request to each of us and give us both a chance to collect more references.

Teach, Learn, Share
I study physics for a living right now. If you want to learn about the wonders of the universe, I'd love to discuss them with you.
I also like fixing things, so if you have a broken something, I'd be happy to see if I can help repair it.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can dust the tops of all your fans and change all of your light bulbs. If you want to start hosting a website, I have some experience doing that, so I could set you up.
