Hi! I’m Arun.

Thanks for visiting my website! This is where I put together highlights of my top 2 passions — Genetics and Travel.

I’m a PhD researcher based in Dublin City University, Ireland. I specialize in the area of genomic and evolutionary analysis of a pandemic E. coli clone.

I thrive on frizzy wines and caffeine–either from a cup of strong black tea or freshly brewed coffee! 🙂

I’m a Filipina lakwatsera and I love the feeling of getting lost in a foreign country. Well, I hated it at first and it made me very anxious. But after wandering aimlessly a million times in my travels because of my poor sense of direction, I learned to embrace it and just enjoyed the freedom of not being bound by maps and compasses!
