Hi there! You can call me Milena

I’m a PhD student at the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, University of Tokyo, currently working as a Special Research Student at the Neural Coding and Brain Computing Unit, OIST.

I'm also the human behind skeppuccino, a SciComm-oriented illustration studio. (∩'ω'⊂)❀
