I am gay and I am a scientist.//


It turns out I have a pervasive crush on Science as well as on challenging chats, in between or separated from traveling, hitting the conference jet-set, and enjoying classical music. My lab is my home. My students are my children. My family is my colleagues. I have no God, except perhaps Darwin, Einstein, my friends, and a few more that I still have to meet. I am polygamous by curiosity and dramatic by birth. I enjoy the irony in the form of self-deprecating remarks, and I love cosmopolitanism as much as sarcasm.
