I study physics and mathematics and have interest and skills in mathematical physics research and STEM advocacy, with an ongoing research project in open quantum systems with Professor Howard Carmichael, FRSNZ.

Still in the fourth year of study at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, I have been named one of the university’s Senior Scholars. I also completed one year of exchange studies at UC Berkeley, California in 2017 – 2018.

Research

Mathematics? Physics? I appreciate how these two subjects require subtly different mindsets, and enjoy seeking a balance in between. This does not limit my curiosity just in these two subjects, however. At present, I hope to research into emergent behaviors of a variety of complex systems and am learning the mathematical tools for open quantum systems.

I grew up on an university campus, and in many ways, never left such an environment. I want to work out my place in the cosmos. To me, as much as they are about the elegant and impassiveness nature and her clockworks, they are about the essence of life itself.

Did I mention that my life goal is to go into a black hole?

Projects

While not busy in theoretical physics, I make stuff.

Although sometimes naively as an amateur, a student or a clueless by-standing friend, I wish to seriously learn and appreciate the various arts of our world.

This sense of curiosity and responsibility dates back to my childhood, and forms what I regard as my own character arc. The first three occupations I ever wanted to work as (while 3, 5 and 7, respectively), are botanist, bridge archetact and automotive industrial designer. I am glad that some meaningful attempts have been made in preparation towards all of them.

Since the establishment of my site, I have added to my portfolio projects in industrial design, digital music, advanced slideshows, software development, 3D modelling (done with the previous activity as modding — find me in BeamNG, TrackMania or Space Engine Forums), and, of course, creative writing.

Writing and Outreach

I work to be a good communicator. That was the initial motivation behind the establishment of my website. On that note, thanks for being here!

I have participated in a lot of outreach events so far, and, HELLO! if you got to know me thanks to these occasions.

You may want to check out some projects that I’ve participated in..

Photography

I grew to love photography. Friends, strangers, landscapes, birds and stars. I occasionally undertake small-scale personal and commercial projects.

My main gear is a Nikon D810 with a box of official and custom-built addon hardware.
