christine braun

assistant professor @ university of warwick

I was born in Munich and moved to San Diego when I was in first grade. I am currently an Assistant Proffessor at University of Warwick. I love soccer and I support FC Bayern M√ľnchen. I am an avid consumer of cheese and believe that beer is never the answer, it is the question and the answer is: yes.
