I'm currently a Project Manager in the Department of Chemistry at Durham University, but with a background and PhD in biophysics (and astrophysics further back than that). I enjoy talking to people, learning about new science, and sitting in pubs!

I am a biophysics PhD student in Durham's Physics Department, looking at the mechanics of biological interfaces. Outside of my degree I teach aerial arts, stilt walk, juggle, unicycle (badly!) - I'm kind of a one-man circus!

Hi everyone! I'm Dario and I'm doing a Post Doc in Durham, using stats to help make future energy more sustainable and to study the impact of climate change onto Arctic melting. Always up for new adventures, cooking and learning new languages :)
