My self-summary
nerdy / scientific / idealistic

I'm interested in science & technology and DIY. I have a small lab capable of chemistry, electronics, and some biological experiments.

Currently I'm using it to clone wild mushrooms and see if I can grow them artificially. If you're interested I'm glad to teach you how to do it.

I've lived in Shanghai and Texas, and I loved traveling in China, especially in Xinjiang where the desert is nice.

Here looking for fun and friendship. I enjoy driving to the mountains and do some mushroom hunting.
What I’m doing with my life
1. Cloning and growing wild mushrooms.
2. Taking care of my Echium pininana plant.
3. Studying physics.
I’m really good at

programming : I hate it as a job, though.

Playing Go : Haven't played for a long time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1. The Martian, recently. The science isn't great, but at least people are doing meaningful things and are working together to solve a problem.

2. Game of Thrones and Westworld.

The Three body problem. I don't really care about character development but the ideas are new and exciting.

Most books are outdated now, it's better to look for information on the web. Research results needs years 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 Beethoven)

Food : salmon, sushi, black tea with lots of honey, matcha, blueberries

Recently interested in yogurt salad, where can I get it in Taipei?
Six things I could never do without
I love the smell of rain and clean air, moved back from China to escape the smog.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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 Capitalism will become outdated and replaced with socialism.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 change this?

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 companies.

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
Googling. Reading scientific articles online.

Heading downtown to explore new places.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
'; drop table;--

You can ask me personally.
You should message me if
I'm interested in people who are devoted to their own hobby or interests and have something to share.

Foreign females are preferred, because I'd like to understand how people in other cultures think, but as long as you are intelligent, curious, or insightful, it'll work. (Also this is a middle-finger to the Taiwanese females who prefer foreigners for no reason :p)
The two of us
