She’s currently in the final year of her PhD in Psychology, a path which she started down as a result of reading The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by the late neurologist and accomplished chronicler of the human condition Oliver Sacks. Among other things, she has been an amateur archaeologist at a Bronze Age site near her hometown in Northern Transylvania,  where her favourite find was a small purple obsidian arrowhead.

When she is not busy working in the lab and writing her dissertation, Irina loves touring Transylvania with her friends and telling them the true story of Vlad the Impaler and the origins of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
