My name is Christoph Champ and this is my personal wiki. As is the trend these days with websites, this site will always be a work-in-progress (or a "beta" version).
Yes. I have a blog, however, I like using both blogs and wikis to organise my studies, research, work, interests, and hobbies.
I am a Linux System Administrator, scientific programmer, computational biologist, and web devoloper.
I am a Third Culture Kid (or TCK; aka a "professional foreigner"). I have lived in or have traveled to 52 countries to date (as of June 2020). I consider myself a "citizen of the world", as I call no one country my home.
My life can be easily divided into chapters:
- Pre-school years (in the most literal sense of the word) — ages 0-5
- Primary school — ages 6-10 (Neulengbach)
- Secondary school — ages 11-15 (Szentendre)
- Gymnasium — ages 16-17
- Grand Tour — ages 18-22
- Undergraduate studies — ages 23-27 (BSc Biochemistry and Biophysics)
- Graduate studies — ages 28-present (see: Academic Research)
My interests are wide and I actively pursue ideas. I am training to become a scientist, however, I do not see this as just a future career; I see it as a way of life.
I also have a great number of hobbies and am always adding more.
My love of books runs deep. I try to read for at least an hour every day (books unrelated to my studies).
In my spare time, I create, maintain, and host websites.
I am a firm believer in standards and I try to incorporate these into any of my designs. My belief in standards is not just limited to the Internet. I am in favour of International Standards wherever we can find a way to have them.
I love languages and learning them and I speak a few. However, English is my primary language. As a side note, I prefer British English in speech and spelling.
My father, older brother, and I have been trying to set personal records of any kind for many years. These include anything from the most countries visited, the highest mountain climbed, the furthest north or south in latitude, the most time zones visited, etc.
