This week we want to highlight our Board Member, Anders Brunmark! 👏 Anders has been on the Board of SACC-SD a little over 4 years. He grew up in Skåne and completed his undergraduate in chemistry in Lund and his PhD in Linköping with a thesis work on quinones and oxygen radicals. He moved to San Diego for a postdoc at Scripps in 1990.
“It was supposed to last for two years but those two years quickly became four. And now almost 30. Well, my postdoc ended after four years and then I took a job at J&J just across the street. So after moving nine time zones I felt a move of a few hundred meters was just right.”
-What's your favorite thing about living and working in San Diego?
Even the first years in town when I returned from trips and we were just about to land on Lindberg field I had that feeling of coming home. There was just something all together pleasant and welcoming about this city. And, ever since then I have never been able to talk myself out of here, there are just too many good things in San Diego.
-Best Swedish candy/ or meal/ or sommarställe?
Do I have to pick just one? Moose filet with gorgonzola. Warm smoked salmon. Smultrontårta. Homemade vanilla ice-cream with cloudberry jam. Etc.
Thank you Anders for your engagement and work on the SACC-San Diego!
