Trained Virologist. Dabbler in Forensics. 95% chimp. 5% endogenous retrovirus. 100% Frustrated Grad Student.
Science. Viruses. Not the computer kind. Public health. The human brain and everything that can go wrong with it. Books. Tea. Coffee. Chocolate. My lab. Oh, and cleaning. EVERYTHING.
Public health. Especially developing nations. People dying of curable infections. CURABLE, not just treatable. Simply due to lack of money/support/people willing to do anything about it. I could blame the government blah blah blah.. but it boils down to people who CAN but WON't. People change things, not laws and legislation.
Anything. Seriously. I LOVE talking. As evidenced above.
I have been listening to TED talks for a while. One day it hit me. It's important what you think, but it's only going to be productive if you act. So here I am. Learning. Experiencing. Living. And most definitely, ready to talk.
