About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Become a salsa dancing scientist

ABOUT ME

I'm a world traveler. I've lived in Spain (Las Palmas, Madrid, Cádiz, Málaga, Cartagena), in the United States (New Jersey), and in France (Montpellier). All that traveling messed with my world perspective in a good way. Being a citizen of nowhere let me choose the culture that best suited me.

I'm doing a PhD in computational biology (working in a virology lab). Science is awesome. Currently, I'm crazy about biology, salsa, languages and flamenco.

PHILOSOPHY

Only work on something you'd be willing to do for free.

You are only as free as your options.

Feel the fear and do it anyway.
