About me

My name is Rui Machado, I'm 28 years and from Portugal. I am currently doing my PhD in Regenerative Medicine and Chronic Diseases, specifically linked to systems biology (computational side of investigation). I am an outgoing person, very shy at first, but when I feel comfortable with new friends, one could say you get a friend for life. Quiet, tidy and clean.


I have studied Biology, Biomedical Sciences and Currently studying Computational Biology for my PhD, but since not many hosts are looking for these kind of expertises I would be willing to do anything to expend some time in a country I have been looking forward to visit and learn about their culture and language. I consider myself a good cook and could shown you some of the western cuisine. I am also a good caretaker, capable of cleaning and maintaining simple appliances. One could say I am a handyman. Love to try new kinds of food, meet new people and learn about the culture

Additional info

I am not a smoker, don't have a drivers license, I am not a vegetarian and I have no allergies.
