願我於前行之際,能夠留下一路餅乾碎屑。即使被現實蠶食,餘繞的那一絲甜蜜氣味,仍能讓我回憶起過往種種。

Pursuing a Ph.D. degree at Florida State University, Tso-Kang focuses his research on fluid-structure interaction and flow control. He received his MS degree from National Taiwan University in 2016 with research on enabling a bio-inspired robot to traverse on rough terrain with a model-based control method. He received his BS degree in physics in 2014 from NTU.

This website is my ever-growing time capsule, freezing every bit of the best, the worst, and the most unforgettable moment in words and frames.
