What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I am a PhD student who is about to defend my dissertation at the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University and Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. I am working on the genetics of human diseases these past years, focusing on the genetics of osteoarthritis. I am looking for a postdoctoral position at the moment and also very excited to contribute more to the science community as a postdoc researcher.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I am actually new to preprints myself, and have just heard and learnt about it over these past two years. I think preprints are a great way to share research easily and rapidly, but there is some resistance about it in my research community. Moreover, not many graduate students have heard and know about it, so I want to support and raise the awareness of it in my community. I believe I can learn more about preprints and how to raise its awareness by joining ASAPbio Fellows program.
What are you excited about in science communication?
It is exciting to communicate your research and your science to fellow researchers, but it is more exciting to see that more and more of science is being communicated to a larger public audience, especially after the pandemic.
