Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Spent a year in Texas A&M as a phd student. Quit afterwards and
now working in Shanghai. Actually I quit my job 2 weeks ago, now I
have more time to do stuff I like.
I'm interested in almost everything about science & technology,
and I've always wanted to invent things that benefit people. I have
a small lab at home in Taiwan.
I'm looking for new friends here. I admire people who has their own
educated opinions and people who are curious about how things
I'm Taiwanese, but I hate most Taiwanese people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved to Pudong and quit my former software job. Looking for
Learning new things in the meanwhile..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
programming : I hate it as a job, though.
Playing Go : Haven't played for a long time. Let's have one!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: The Martian, recently.
I watch game of thrones. Mainly because medieval lifestyle is
I also watch Big bang theory, but I think it peaks at season
Most books are outdated now, it's better to look for information on
the web. Research results needs a year to get into textbooks. I
haven't been able to finish some books like Differential Geometry
and QFT, but I am working on that.
Music : Classical music (mostly Chopin, some Liszt and Mozart and
Food : salmon, sushi, black tea with lots of honey, matcha,
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.
Since I arrived in Shanghai, I've started to carry a respiration
mask in my backpack, just in case I encounter smokers, which is
pretty damn always. Air quality in this area isn't helping, with
AQI reaching 150 in my room pretty often.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. The structure of society and technology progresses. We're nearly
able to provide everybody with enough food to survive. Capitalism
will become outdated and replaced with socialism. People might be
able to pursue their interests regardless of pay.
2. Making science accessible to the masses. Science still belongs
to the privileged few, due to the inaccessibility of instruments.
The high price of these machines are mainly due to the market being
small, which is an chicken-and-egg problem. What can we do to
For example a PCR machine simply heats stuff and cools it down, the
principle is as simple as an oven but the price is a lot higher.
That is what makes research limited to academics or big
3. 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 contribute nearly 40% of oxygen
production on earth.
4. 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 scientific articles online.
Heading downtown to explore new places.
You should message me if

devices, protein synthesis, vacuum systems, nanofabrication,
feedback control, precision sensing, hardware hacking, etc..
