I do research in malaria, namely the spread of drug resistant malaria.
Although I have some interest in Environmental causes, my main species of interest is Homo Sapiens, as such I am quite interested in human topics, from a left-leaning, cosmopolitan, urban perspective.
I tend to believe more in a "Do no evil approach" then in a "Do good approach". It seems to me that history mainly shows that when one tries to do good, (s)he ends up screwing up a lot. So I prefer to do no harm. No car. Vegetarian. No TV (small energetic footprint at home). Fair Trade products when possible. I fly a bit more than I should.
I really don't like people who talk a lot (especially about others) and do very little themselves.
You you are curious about my interests, you can find more on the "Personal" tab of my Care2 profile.
I have checked your page often since I knew you were busy and I discovered today things have changed on your page, and you have moved! Hope you will have a little more time here at Care2. Best wishes to you. ^..^ Maura
