I find that the structures and functions of life forms are amazing to study, no matter what their scale is; trying to understand how and why they evolved and function the way they do is not only fascinating: it gives precious insights into why diseases arise, and opens research avenues to limit their effects. Communicating one's interests to others and learning from others are great pleasures in Life - and two important aspects of Science!
Personal Interests and HobbiesAside from my work, I like spending time with my kids and friends, walking our goldendoodle, jogging, cooking and reading.
