What was the inspiration behind your artwork?

All my artwork is based on the research that I conduct. My research focuses on the fundamental investigation of micro/nanoscale transport physics through data-driven deep learning techniques to address thermal challenges in modern electronics and energy applications.

What do you see as the similarity between science and art? Why is science-art important in today's society?

I think that both science and art are great avenues to express oneself. Science is fascinating because it is (in my opinion) one of the most fundamental, yet powerful tools that we use to try to understand the world around us. We use science almost as a global language and it somehow brings us all together to tackle unresolved problems. While art may be a little more abstract than science, art is free. The unlimited ways art is expressed really helps you see things from new perspectives. I personally found myself finding so many interesting things that I wanted to share with my friends while I was conducting research. However, there always seemed to be a bit of a disconnect between the macro and micro worlds, which I felt pretty helpless about until I started editing my SEM images. I strongly feel that we can start building bridges between the scientific and non-scientific community by expressing relatable ideas through art.
