While the large majority of my academic training is in the scientific disciplines, I am also a classically trained opera singer and greatly enjoy studying English, German language, and literature. In my free time, I also enjoy dancing, exercising, cooking, trying new foods, spending time with friends, taking day-trips, playing with my kitten (whose name is Apollo), and volunteering at my local free health clinics.
