Joe Linogao

Research Student, Engineering wth Management, Trinity College Dublin

Hello! My name is Joe Linogao (he/him), and I am an Engineering with Management student at Trinity College Dublin. I became a Laidlaw Scholar for TCD on April 2021 with my research proposal, "Automated Procedure for the Microbial Analysis of Contact Plates."

For my course, I specialise in Energy/Fluid studies, focusing on fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and engineering design. Despite this, I have taken a keen interest in robotics and machine learning which were major influencers for my research project. Additionally, I am currently a part of a student-led Robotics research team under the same supervisor I have for Laidlaw.

Outside of college work, I am very interested in Arduino, coding (MATLAB/Python are my strongest languages), Solidworks and 3D Printing, all of which I have great knowledge with. However, I am always willing to hone my skills and learn other skills if need be.

My hobbies include music and Dungeons & Dragons (like the absolute nerd I am). Regarding music, I've posted many songs (covers & originals) on outlets such as Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music, and many more (check out my website for more details)! Due to this, I also have plenty of experience with software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Trinity College Dublin joined the Laidlaw Network in 2018. The Laidlaw Programme offers undergraduate students at Trinity the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and experience to become active global citizens and future leaders.

Laidlaw Scholars work with an academic supervisor on a self-directed, independent research project and take part in a suite of integrated leadership development activities which culminate in a challenging applied leadership experience. Laidlaw Scholars join a community of learning, driven by curiosity and collaboration, which enables diverse voices to make a meaningful impact.

The Laidlaw Programme at Trinity is open to undergraduates in the second year of a four year programme or the second/third year of a five year undergraduate/integrated masters programme.

Aaron Koay

PhD Scholar in Population Health & Human Factors | Pharmacist, Trinity College Dublin

I am a PhD Scholar in Population Health and Human Factors at Trinity College Dublin. For my PhD, I am exploring household medication practices and safety vulnerabilities in laypeople through the lens of systems thinking. I am also a qualified pharmacist in Ireland. I have a strong interest in (health) equity, global health, population health, health services research and global development practice. For my Laidlaw research project, I investigated the therapeutic potential of a natural-occurring vitamin called ergothioneine, mostly found in mushrooms, on the development of idiopathic and bleomycin-induced lung scarring in lung cells. Beyond that, I have had extensive research experiences across medical humanities, plant metabolomics and pharmacy practice. During my free time, you'll most likely find me practising yoga and meditation in my room! If you're interested to have a chat about anything, don't hesitate to drop me a line! Look forward to hearing from you! :)
