Biology

In the domain of biology, my major interest area is

  1. Complex systems such as how organisms interact with the biosphere, the technosphere and the various interactions involved such as symbiosis.

  2. Microbiology, including how various microbes interact with other agents , their role on the ecosystem, obtaining nutrients, socialise, interesting and important microbe species examples, industrial applications, ethics and regulations behind biotechnology etc.

  3. Immunology of many species from microbes to plants to human body.

  4. Animal behaviour and sociology, e.g. corvids.

Besides that, I have a hobby of watching birds. However said hobby is not intense enough for me to become a professional birdwatcher. Instead of using sophisticated equipment to photograph birds in designed locations, I prefer to watch and photograph them using handheld or phone cameras on the move. Occassionally, I like to interact with the birds as long they are not afraid (not feeding them, though)

Science Education

The importance of the role in education in advancing science is well recognised. In the context of biology, I am interested in, if possible, obtaining and building "lossless representations" of a given biological concept.

A lossless representation is a non word based information communication method (such as pictures, graphs etc.) that contains sufficient information to allow many subtleties and exceptional cases of a field of study (which is usually overlooked by analogies and only apparent in the more rigorous) to be covered, the the point that theoretically the field of study (or aspects of it) can be derived by manipulation of this representation.

As a result,

  1. Visualisation and

  2. Ability to explain the concept losslessly to a layman such that they can easily understand it, arosing their interest and be able to experiment on it by start performing qualitative and semiquantitative computations using it

are important considerations
