About Me

A PhD student in chemistry who loves travelling and poetry.
Also, breaking the cliché that doctoral students are boring ;)

Two important things about me:
1. I can really talk.
2. I can really eat.
(Hold on to the "re" sound as long as you can)

After living for two years in the touristy Vieux Lyon I have moved to Villeurbanne, 20 mins from the train station and 15 mins from the city centre by public transport. It is a single-room studio of 20m² in a student residence but you get your own mattress along with all essentials and a well-equipped kitchen (for my evident love for food)—no better way to know about me than the lovely people-turned-friends, who left reviews on CS.

Weekdays can be tricky to host because of work but feel free to drop a request anyway. I'll see what I can do. Weekends are much more possible.

Cheers! 🍻
Enjoy Lyon

Teach, Learn, Share

The joy of cooking food, typically Indian food. Talking about history, cultures and languages that even though so diverse, bind all of us together.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Indian meals (and of course the recipes), beer/wine, my love for science and maybe some reflections on life.

Countries I’ve Visited
