I am currently doing my post-doctoral research fellowship at University of Sydney. I completed my PhD at University of Melbourne last year and I am still based there. For the time being, I need to spend an average of two weeks a month in Sydney (until I move permanently to Sydney). I have had a wonderful home-stay experience with a lovely few years ago when I started my PhD and would love to repeat the experience. I think you'll find me a nice, very considerate and easy-going person (or so I am told : ) ) An en-suite room is all I require for my stay.
If you have pets, especially a dog, that'd be a bonus [I could probably walk them too : ) ]
