  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    First experiment I designed was my undergraduate research project entitled, "Isolation, characterization and biomolecule analysis of freshwater green algae Chlorella sp. throughout growth.

  • Profile Question 2
    Can you share a funny/interesting lab or field story?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
    It happens to me often. When I introduce myself as a plant biologist, people ask me the names of plants they see around. And I am bad about naming plants because I am phycologist and plant molecular biologist. Then I have a hard time explaining them why I study algae.

  • Profile Question 3
    What is best about being a scientist?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    The most amazing I feel about being scientist is that even I read some research works on plants that are unrelated to my field, I know a little bit about it. So I don't need to stand alone in any conversation and if I like the work I can go back and read more.
