Kathrine Tan


Hello, I’m Kathrine. I come from a small town named Kluang in Johor, Malaysia.

I joined this laboratory since Oct 2019. I am glad that I get to be here.

In my opinion, regardless of who we are and where we are (whether a researcher in Japan, an artist in France or a novelist in China etc.), we are all trying to learn more about the world in our own way.

I hope I will be able to give my two cents after completing the journey as a PhD student.
