In addition to my research interests, I enjoy painting, running and rowing.


When I travel, I enjoy painting watercolor sketches of the sights I see. I also love studio painting, where I usually use acrylic paints. I have a Facebook album with a few light sketches as well as some more serious paintings.

Often an activity I do when I want to think through things or to ease stress, I love running through parks and along rivers. My favorite distances to run are 5k and 10k, but I’ll also run the occasional half marathon.


I am proud to be an alumni of the University of Oregon Rowing Team. Waking up at 4:30 am six days a week and watching the sun rise over the mountain peaks as our heart rates do too is something I’ll never forget.
