Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Taiwan, I think what best characterizes me is that I like
to do DIY science experiments, like making ferrofluid, growing
mushrooms, building a tesla coil or culturing algae.
Life was good until I went to TAMU to do a PhD but quit after one
year. Now working at a robotics company in Shanghai as a software
I'm constantly trying to learn new things in science &
technology. Currently I'm more interested in materials and
biotechnology and AI. Due to work, I don't have much time for the
experiments as I used to, and I always think of quitting and going
back to do what I really want to do.
I'm here for new friends, serious or casual relationships, though
I'm probably less experienced in relationships than you are.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
programming : I hate the engineering aspect but I do like to be
able to use a powerful tool.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I watch game of thrones. Mainly because GoT probably gives us a
glimpse of the medieval life that is not devoid of action.
Books : Science fiction & history.
Good science fiction can predict the evolution of technology, it's
hard to have new ideas now but that's because we don't think
Music : Classical music (mostly Chopin, some Liszt and Mozart and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I love the smell of rain and clean air.
I always carry a respiration mask in my bag, just in case I
encounter smokers in Shanghai, which is pretty damn always. If I
have my way, I'll have all smokers EXTERMINATED.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Making science accessible to the masses.
I believe the reason our technology progresses at such a slow pace
is because ordinary people don't have the resource to try to
discover things. And that is because most of the scientific
instruments are expensive. Computers used to be expensive but now
everybody has one, and we can do many of things with it, but those
things remain in the virtual world. In order to bring the
scientific spirit to all people, we need to make the instruments
cheap. I hope one day everybody can afford an SEM and can observe
nanostructures at home.
I also think of geoengineering. We're not using the desert and the
sea enough. Aquaculture on the ocean could provide more food than
we produce now. Desert sand could provide iron for ocean
fertilization, silicon for diatom growth, which consists nearly 40%
of oxygen production on earth.
I think of biotechnology. Why is it when people talk about
biotechnology they think of drugs? What about making algae strains
that could colonize mars, or bacteria that can degrade plastic? Why
isn't Western blot automated, but instead takes hours to perform
and require a trained master degree student?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Googling. Reading articles online.
Heading to downtown for something less boring.
