Of course, I do not only do science and admittedly, I often have the best ideas when I am not at my desk in the office.
I am very outdoorsy and during the summer I love rowing as well as hiking in the mountains whenever the weather and my schedule allows. During the winter, I go skiing (downhill and cross-country) and I even did biathlon a few times, that is shooting and cross-country skiing (if you ever get the chance to do it, it is great fun!).
Besides sports, I play the cello in the orchestra of the University of Basel, where I am also a board member.
