Putting a spotlight on Philippine Science is not an easy task. Currently, finding good research from the Philippines is like finding a needle in a haystack. But like any needle, such research works, albeit few, can prick!
Also, Science can do wonders to a nation. This is why every now and then, my blog will try to feature research that may have an impact on the Islands.
Oh by the way, I am a physicist on a short stint in Europe. I was in Leiden University, the Netherlands when I started this blog. Currently, I am with the Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques, Castelldefels (Barcelona), Spain.
Thanks to modern technology, I am able to keep in touch with Filipino Scientists, both back home and other parts of the world.

Some of my friends are wondering how I could get time writing for this blog. Actually, reading science articles is part of work so that is not a problem for me. I could read while taking my data or having lunch. The real bottle neck is writing. Honestly, writing is hard. So I only write on Fridays and Saturdays during nighttime or early morning. An article can be written in as short as 30 mins for things that I really know, or may take as long as 2 hours. If it’s taking longer than 2 hours, it means I can’t write about that research work during that time or I need time to read it again or I have attained the limits of my understanding.
