Message to Students

In chemical or biological evolution, matters always find ways on how to efficiently utilize energy in accordance to their environment. From the symbiotic relationship of algae and lichen or social structure of a bee colony to the modern human society or future Mars colony, here at GLA, I will work with students on how to explore the dynamic relationship of Science and Society. I, as a mentor, together with the whole GLA family, will always guide you in every step of the way as you realize your dream and place in our society. I hope to see you here at GLA soon!
