Before doing my graduate studies, I worked as an instructor at the University of the Philippines for around 3 years, teaching subjects such as general, inorganic, organic, and analytical chemistry. After graduating from my PhD and before working at Leave a Nest, I used to work at a business consultancy company called Intralink, which was based in London but had branches in Japan, China, and South Korea. The company worked to help companies from Europe and the US expand into East Asia, and I was in charge of helping biotechnology and medical device companies in general.

Q8.What is the most challenging part of your job? *

Trying to change the world is not an easy job because you have a lot of work to do! As I am also working both in Japanese and English (and sometimes in my local languages due to my work in the Philippines), conversing in languages that I am not really native in can sometimes easily tire me out too.

Q9. What is your passion? *

Q11. Please tell us about your hobbies and skills. *

I have always described myself (and people have also told me too) that I am an art-person at heart but trained as a science-person. Given that I went through graduate school and got my PhD, I am sure that I have the skill set the makes a scientist. However, most of my hobbies and skills are inclined way towards the arts: singing, dancing, writing, taking photos and videos and editing them, are just a few of the things that I purely enjoy.

Our Four Pillar Projects

We support children's science education and their research activities and cultivate the ability to realize the future.

<Main Project>

SCIENCE CASTLE

SCIENCE CASTLE is an international conference for youth researchers and budding entrepreneurs. It is a platform for Junior and Senior High School “young researchers” to share their research and development projects with a focus on Science, Technology, and Engineering to solve social challenges faced in Asia and/or the world in their mission to advance science and technology for global happiness.

We support the career development of researchers and the development of the ability to implement them in society.

<Main Project>

Career Discovery Forum

Career Discovery Forum (CDF) is a unique event that started in Tokyo, Japan in 2016. It was introduced by Leave a Nest Group and started as a seminar where university students, researchers, and companies exchanged thoughts and visions with the aim to create new science research topics and design future careers together. Unlike other career fairs, CDF gave the opportunity for employers to identify potential talents outside normal recruitment channels.

We will improve the research and development environment and accelerate the promotion of technology transfer.

<Main Project>

Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference

In this decade, the number of scientific publications were increased in exponential manner. However, the body of knowledge we human being can grasp did not increase as so. To fill this gap, we create the concept “Hyper Interdisciplinary” in 2002. Since then, we Leave a Nest act as Science Bridge Communicator to connect various specialists; such as scientists, engineers, business person, maestro from factory, medical doctor, farmer, educator and etc. We hypothesize that “Hyper Interdisciplinary” network of specialists is the key to make the body of human knowledge be exponential, too. This is where amazing happens.

We connect startups, research institutes, and companies to create new businesses, or Frontier.

<Main Project>

Tech Planter

TECH PLANTER is Asia's largest real tech seed acceleration program. As a platform for researchers and startups aiming at the social implementation of science and technology, it plays a role to discover the seeds of science and technology that are being developed every day and make them grow as a business.

Internal Education Program

In order to realize our corporate philosophy of “Advancing Science and Technology for Global Happiness,” Leave a Nest employees not only have a thorough knowledge of science and technology, but also need to communicate extensively with a wide range of researches, engineers, companies, local governments, and others. In particular, in order to involve a large number of people in the projects they are involved in and lead to success, they need to be able to communicate the attractiveness and potential of the technologies and sciences they handle to the fullest extent possible.

In light of this, Leave a Nest provides training programs on basic skills and mindset so that all employees can grow into “science bridge leaders” with the skills to communicate science and technology in an easy-to-understand manner.

About Internships

Leave a Nest was founded in 2001 as a student venture by 15 science and engineering students. At the time of establishment, the business was centered on experimental classes that conveyed cutting-edge science. Members met on the weekdays of the laboratory to hold planning meetings.

Against this backdrop, Leave a Nest continues to conduct weekend-type interns every Sunday, and offices in various countries also recruit participants whenever necessary.

As a general rule, the subject envisions graduate school students and postdoc students, but you have a diverse track record, such as students and weekday interns.
