More about me

Flying things have always been a fascination of mine, but my main interest is in space technology, which involves probably an unlimited pool of new skills and knowledge to be learnt. Learn. Learning is probably one of my favourite activities, and I have been lucky enough to be part of an Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Space Science and Technology, which has brought me to live in the heart of Germany in beautiful Würzburg; to the Arctic Circle in Sweden, where I got to experience the amazing spectacle that the northern lights are; and to Toulouse, the heart of the space industry in France. Traveling is, I believe, one of the best ways to learn. I enjoy traveling in all the different forms it comes: riding a bike to the next town along the beach, a day off getting lost hiking in the mountains, a road trip to a neighbouring country, meeting new people, trying to communicate in a foreign language, or tasting new food. Food. Eating is most likely my third favourite thing to do, although I'm not a great cook, I really enjoy my meals.
