I will be pursuing my PhD in Political Science starting from the coming academic year. My interests are quite versatile. I love discussions related to social sciences and philosophy, but I also enjoy anime, poems, novels, classical music, and TV series (esp. Westworld). Also, love food, especially Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. I am pretty clean especially when it comes to shared spaces. I don't mind if each of us are slightly messy in our respective personal spaces (as long as that does not cause hygiene problems). It would be great if I could get friendly and fun roommates, but I won't mind if you want to be quiet and study on your own every day either. I do want a roommate who would voice out every relevant concern out and resolve them over communication. Do contact me if you think we can work this out!
