Yu Kai Tan | Malaysia
Majors: Biology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Anthropology
Tan Yu Kai has been combing the shores and hills of Penang, Malaysia for natural curiosities since his childhood. The invigorating prospect of triple majoring in Biology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, and Anthropology compels him to continue constructing narratives around otherwise inaccessible works of academia. He spends his time tending to beehives on Long Lane Farm, working in the Wesleyan’s Natural History Museum, operating the 24″ Reflector in the observatory and frolicking with plants. Exploration never ceases in his life – stargazing, mineral collecting, horticulture, hiking, scuba diving, painting, jewelry making, tree-climbing, Deinotheriuming &c.
