Could you tell us something about your work at the department?
I will set up and work on the isolated heart technique called The Langendorff, where I will study direct cardiac effects of pharmacological/interventional cardiac therapies under pathological conditions, such as ischemia-reperfusion injury and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Could you describe yourself in a few words:
I think I’m a human-version of a Tamagotchi; when fed properly I am a very happy person. I love my family and I hang out with them most of the time. And I am very dedicated to working in science.
What do you normally do in the weekends?
I would find a nice hiking area, hang out with friends & family, or just relax. Lately, I’ve been exploring different parts of the city, since I’m new to this area.
What are your hobbies and can you tell us something about your favorite one?
Lately, my prime hobby was to assemble IKEA furniture and paint walls at our new home, but I guess from now on, it’ll be more hanging out with my family and friends, while enjoying food/drinks. I like photography, but I’m still learning the best tricks for making great pictures.
Could you describe your best holiday?
White sand beaches, palm trees, cocktails, a hike or two on a nice mountain area, Italian food and wine, doing outdoor activities, and at least 30 oC outside.
What is your dream for the future?
I would love to be able to explore all parts of the world. I haven’t seen East-Asia and Australia for example. So it would be a dream to go there, maybe even live in another country. But I think that now, life is also pretty great.
Please add a picture of yourself during a certain activity and add here a note explaining the photo:
This is me and Noah, my son, in our natural habitat aka my parent’s house. We try to visit my parents and catch up with them at least once/twice a month. Their home is like a gathering place for me and my siblings so we often clear our schedule to go there when we notice that one of the others is present there as well.
