About Me


is to learn


I am person who is never tired of exploring. Curiosity is my fuel and motivation. I enjoy diversity, in every term. I try not to miss the opportunity when it comes to moving to a new place, travelling somewhere new and meeting new people. I recently moved to Delft, the Netherlands for my PhD research project. Before moving to the Netherlands, I lived in Germany for 3 years. I enjoy the company of people who are passionate about what they do. I am quite a good listener and enjoy very much the good time spent with friends. I barely turn down an offer of a beer however I am not a late night disco type. I used to be a semi professional musician in the past, it is a shame I don't have time for that anymore. I play guitar and harmonica. I taught harmonica and guitar in the past.

The only constant is the change.
