About Me

Greetings! I'm Ismail, a Postdoctoral Researcher at the esteemed TU Dresden. Dive into my world of intellectual curiosity:

But that's just one side of me. Over the past three years, I've passionately embraced distance running, conquering 8 Marathons with a personal best of 3:20:45, numerous Half Marathons (PB 1:29:25), and zipping through 10Ks in 39:25. My daily training regimen means we can explore various fitness activities together!

I'm not just about academia and athletics; I thrive on adventure and open-minded exploration. Life is an adventure, and I'm determined to savour its finest offerings every single day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe in the magic of human connections. It is all about sharing stories, cultures, and experiences with people from every corner of the globe. I'm on Couchsurfing to embrace the unknown and to discover new knowledge about different cultures.


I like movement and adrenaline. My favourites range from distance running to SCUBA diving, tennis to swimming and table tennis to soccer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like the rhythmic beats of Jazz too much.

I like "based on true story" movies.

Some books that have left a lasting impact on me include "Black Box Thinking" by Matthew Syed, "The Story of the Human Body" by Daniel Libermann, and all books by Sebahattin Ali and Aziz Nesin.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bungee jumping at Viaducto del Tigre in Ibague, Colombia. It was a big adrenaline rush.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am also considerably new in Dresden but explored most of the important spots of the city. We can continue exploring together.
