I have been an ardent reader since I joined a local library at age 6.
Fantasy, especially the high fantasy sub-genre, and science fiction are what I love reading the most.
Most of my time is spent on reading series which span multiple books, as I enjoy the freedom that it provides with respect to world-building and character development.
My favourite series, in no particular order, include The Wheel of Time,
The Stormlight Archives (and the entire Cosmere books),
The Lord of the Rings and the rest of Tolkien’s work (obviously),
the Earthsea series,
the Dune series and of course all of
Isaac Asimov’s books (especially the Foundation series).
Asimov's work, in particular, was a strong influence in my decision to follow a career in research.
