I grew up about an hour east of Kansas City, MO. I went to college in northern Missouri (with an extra year in Cleveland, Ohio). I spent the last 6 years at UConn.
The lack of sunlight in the winter... Thankfully the days are currently getting longer and it's great :)
No. I've been to the Taco Diner, and it's okay, but still not what I hope for. There are several Mexicans in my research group, and they make traditional Mexican food sometimes. (I still secretly miss Tex-Mex)
I'm here as a postdoctoral research, working at the Geological Museum. I'm here for at least 2 years, depending on the results on the various projects.
I'm originally from Missouri, but I've moved around in the States, most recently in Connecticut. I'm here in Copenhagen for postdoctoral research on ancient DNA.
