About Me

I am from Paris, France and have been living in Minneapolis for several years.
I graduated with a Master of Science in Engineering and did a PhD in neuroscience in Nancy, France. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in the Biomedical Engineering Dept. I investigate how neuromodulation can affects brain's activity in humans and in nonhuman primates.

I am always down (like 90%) for fun outdoors/indoors adventures or meeting new people. I am pretty chill and usually go with the flow. I am a huge fan of deep conversations and silly ones as well :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love sharing my experiences and helping travelers to have a couch for a night is still enjoyable :) I definitely think that if you really want to feel the atmosphere of a country, you have to meet local people and share their experience and knowledge.


- I am really fond of photography !! I have owned my current photography device for almost 9 years and I am still amazed by what I see ! Here's my instagram @harry_tran_photo
