Noah D. Stein

My nonacademic interests include board and card games, listening to and making music, watching movies and cancelled TV shows on DVD, and enjoying the outdoors. I also like cooking, baking, and eating -- especially sweets of any kind -- and I am a member of the MIT Laboratory for Chocolate Science. To try to balance this out, I swim, run when the weather is nice, and play DDR when it isn't. I live in Somerville, MA with my fiancée Laura who has a “real job” at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and whom I've been dating for about nine years. Some of my favorites (and many of hers) are listed below.

Favorite board/card games: Dominion, Puerto Rico, Through the Desert, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Boggle.

Favorite music: Nightwish, Apocalyptica, Pink Martini, rane, Guster, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Folds, Clifford Brown, Don Ellis.
