In his words:
I am quite passionate about my research profession that involves formulating/writing original theories in economics.
I am absolutely not a party or outgoing person, but frequently engage in adventure activities such as trekking, biking and long distance running. Love to sit in cafes and have interesting discussions, or anywhere for that matter. Music is an involved hobby for me: I play the classical guitar, but listen to a variety of genres.
