Who am I is always a hard question, especially as one studies dharma. I am a lonely wanderer, born in the Netherlands but currently stranded in the US. Greetings from Philadelphia, where I currently live. I am a PhD student in neuroscience (University of Pennsylvania), trying to learn about the brain and what oscillations have to do with memory. I also have a strong interest in the cognitive neuroscience of meditation (for more info see www.mindandlife.org)
In addition to that I also have strong interests in Tibetan Buddhism and ballet. I hope to be able to provide some ramblings about my experiences, and some reflections on life, science and dharma every now and then.
