My name is Toshiki George Nakashige. I'm a second-generation Japanese American, a Millennial, and a scientist. I like to write about social and cultural identity and how my understanding of it has been shaped by science/technology, art, and globalization.

I have bachelor's degrees in chemistry and art history from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I am currently a researcher in chemical biology at The Rockefeller University in New York. I call Dallas home.

I host the podcasts Scientist and The Big Root. I also have a Patreon page to support writing a novel.
