I am an avid reader and find interest in a wide range of subjects. My main fascination is with Physics, Robotics, Biology, and Human Behavior. Over the years, I have formally studied Physics and Mechanical Practical Engineering.
For me, understanding is a goal, but also a bottomless pit, and I am always amazed how something I thought to know perfectly can reveal new insights. The resulting endless journey is sometimes hard and frustrating, but when a new understanding suddenly solidifies it is just amazing.
