The Physical Optics and Electronics Lab at MIT - which I work in - has kicked off a 5 year collaboration with Singapore to tackle agriculture precision. Our goal is to provide new instruments and tools for plant researchers so they can accurately measure plant hormone levels - and hence their health. I got to use my engineering design skills learned at MIT to help plant researchers at the National University of Singapore. I also conducted the initial testing of plant samples on a newly purchased Raman spectroscopy system. This kicked-off the first round of experiments done at CREATE on this project. I also had the incredible opportunity of attending Focus on Microscopy - my first international academic conference - that was held at the Singapore Expo. Here, I met with scientists and companies from all over the world working on microscopy.
