Kung saan hinuhugot ang ideya

In this short intimate talk, I will reveal my group’s not-so-secret process of creating ideas. While this process may be personal and unique to our group, and we may not have a large body of work that spans a wide spectrum of topics yet, I hope to accomplish two things. First is to give young researchers a sort of template as they try to determine their own creative process. As budding scientists, we usually have difficulty knowing where to start. And second, I want the audience to reflect and be conscious of their own methods of creation, to be aware of what works for them. Scientists are expected to be creatives. Knowing the process of creating ideas, eases the burden of making them.

About the Speaker

Nathaniel Hermosa is professor of Physics at the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines Diliman. He heads the Structured Light and Applications cluster of the Photonics Research Laboratory. After almost five years of being a postdoc in Leiden University, the Netherlands, and in ICFO–The Institute of Photonics Sciences in Barcelona, Spain, he returned to the University of the Philippines Diliman in 2014. He likes going to hardware stores and supermarkets, and savors staring at scenery or a blank wall.
