I make short films. It is a hobby and passion. So far I have made four productions and you can read all about them and watch them on my website.

I'm currently pursuing my Master's degree in physics and intend to become an astrophysicist.

As editor-in-chief of the online physics magazine, Physics Capsule, I write there to popularise physics among the public.
