Hobbies: Above all, sports (cycling, tennis, hiking, skiing) and dance. Also, music, travel, camping, and books.

What Influenced you to study Chemistry: I studied Biochemistry because I love "living things". For me, learning the molecular basis that makes life possible is the most interesting thing I could ever do. I am always amazed at the degree of perfection that biochemical systems have acquired over the many years of evolution.
