Shawn is a sixth-year graduate student hailing from the sunny island of Singapore. He graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2015 with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Physics and a fascination with plasmas led him to his current pursuit of a Ph.D. in experimental plasma physics at UCLA. His current research focuses on investigating spiky structures found in magnetic flux ropes created in UCLA's Large Plasma Device. In his free time, Shawn enjoys creative endeavors such as crafting, prop making, graphic design and illustration. He believes art has the potential to deliver a strong impact through visual storytelling.
