Hi, I'm from Milano, Italy. I'm 36 and I 'm a developmental biologist, I now work in the stem cell research field. I really enjoy my work in research, and it really fills my day, but I also enjoy other activity. I love horse riding, even if I cannot afford the time to own a horse. I also recently start to practice capoeira.
I love reading novels, some of my favourite authors are Isabel Allende, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, JRR Tolkien, and of course I read all the Harry Potter books!
I also like science fiction movies, expecially the old ones, and I am a star trek fan.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think extraterrestrial life do exist, even if many tend to have a too human- and earth- centric view of it . I personally find quite hard to have slightly realistic thought! We have been around for such a short time.
The idea of scanning for radio signals is one of the most reasonable one, also because of our limitation in any other space exploration means.
why I run Seti@home, well, it's just a little way to help.
