Hai received his B.S. and M.S. in chemistry from the University of Tokyo, and his Ph.D. from the Scripps Research Institute under the supervision of Professor Phil Baran. Hai discovered that as he’s moving east, he’s had opportunities to deal with bigger molecules. In Muir lab, Hai is amazed at how simple kDa level of molecules can be synthesized and, at the same time, is trying hard to find chemdraw structures in group meeting presentations. Currently, Hai is interested in developing synthetic tools to study the nucleosome acidic patch.
