"Make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler" - Einstein




On the journey of my life there are two paths that cross and then join together: Dreams with a vision towards the future and Constant desire to learn and change . It never will end for me! ... Valbona
(This picture is in Paris June 2010. I've always thought that Paris was so much more beautiful and romantic during the winter. It's really hot there in the Summer. If you are to Paris around December, it's quite cold but if you're lucky, you'll get to see Paris under the snow, which is absolutely breathtaking. Everything is much more beautiful during the winter, also because of the Christmas lights and the atmosphere. You have to be there to see. It is beautiful to be there with a loved one, during the Winter. It's really romantic to walk around Paris under a coat, wearing gloves, walking around bohemian Montmartre under the snow.)


My main research interest is to fully understand the physical mechanisms of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar flares. This include the study of CME acceleration, its relationship to flare energy release, CME propagation, evolution of CME magnetic fields from the Sun to 1AU. I am focusing on understading the physical processes, dependence of magnetic field B (at 1 AU) on solar quantities and potential observable relationships.

I would like to pursue in the future coronal heating and solar wind acceleration. I have different ideas than those that are investigated by other scientists now. I don't know if I am wrong or right but I would like to try my new ideas. I am not afraid of failures. In this case I realize that the energy that creates great ideas can also create error, and failure is not really the opposite of success. In fact, both failure and success are on the same side of the spectrum because both are the result of an attempt made. I learned that failures are waypoints on the way to success, just a step away from it. So, I prefer to be a creative with my ideas (failure or success) and make change, than being a follower of old ideas that others scientists are working on for years.
I do find to myself that I am more creative when presented with a challenge!

I find that the inspiration is everywhere - from the words of my favorite friends to the blooms and leaves on my morning walk. I enjoy the challenge of communicating what we each experience in our everyday lives, bringing those unique moments to life through words and sentences.

Question to me:

What do I do in my free time? Good question! - No free time for me.


Fashion, painting, running, biking, spinning (love working out! balance exercise are my favors), traveling, music (all types!),writting etc.
