I am this token weirdo that you would find in any research institution. Reverse engineer gene regulatory networks for food, explore black hole information theory and extra dimensions by night. Weekends are reserved for step by step plans to take over the world. Studied Theoretical Physics and Chemical Engineering. Awaiting my PhD defense.
