About Me

I'm a climate researcher, working on the description of cloud physics and dynamics in models. I want to work later on climate change adaptation strategies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hosted occasionally in Atlanta and want to start again in New York. I surfed some in Canada and Germany. I love to travel, and it's nice to build up a network of people all over the place.


I love sports and being outside - I run, swim, and bike a lot and do long distance races and triathlons. I also like to camp and hike. I love language learning, linguistics, and generally how people communicate. I am more musical than artistic - I play classical piano and have had some practice with violin, clarinet, guitar, and drums.

Music, Movies, and Books

What's Eating Gilbert Grape?, Little Miss Sunshine, Milk, Etre et Avoir

Radiohead, Ibrahim Maalouf, Kendrick Lamar, Miles Davis, Neil Young, Florence + The Machine

I also enjoy classical music and opera. A lot of what I read is non-fiction, but poetry is great - I especially like Seamus Heaney and Jorge Borges. Their Eyes Were Watching God is my favorite novel.
