Johnny TongJohnny Tong received his bachelor’s degree in physics at the University of Hong Kong in 2020, where he studied optical properties of graphene using machine learning with Dr. Dong Kuen Ki for his bachelor thesis. He was also trained as an intern at Academia Sinica to work on mechanical characterization of neuron.
Then he finished his theoretical thesis on spatial-temporal modelling of bacteriophage communication strategies with Dr. Namiko Mitarai at Niels Bohr Institute alongside with his master’s degree in biophysics at the University of Copenhagen in 2022.
He joined Prof. Alim’s group in 2022 as a HFSP PhD student at Technical University of Munich to work on the dynamics of nuclei in slime mold Physarum polycephalum with experimental and quantitative methods.
