About Me

Hello, I'm Sophie! I'm a maths/bio PhD student studying infectious diseases. Doing a PhD is pretty tiring, so I try to go away as often as I can afford- I love visiting new places and especially trying new food! Even better is when I can share this with new friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people from all over the world! I can't really afford to travel at the moment as I'm saving to travel the world after I finish my PhD in 2019/2020, but I am happy to share where I live with anyone who comes to visit!

Music, Movies, and Books

I've just finished reading Chimamanda Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun and loved it. I'm trying to read more, so please share your favourites with me!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did my PADI Open Water and Advanced scuba diving qualifications when I was backpacking in Asia and it is honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. At some point in the future I'd really like to do my Divemaster training.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you how to make a very cute origami sampan!
