Faces of BME – Jose C.

PhD Candidate McGuigan Lab

Ivy Hon

I’ve been playing bass for 15 years now, but mostly as a hobby. We started a band with a couple of people from BioZone, and we rehearse every couple of weeks. The name of the band hasn’t been decided yet, but since we practice on Front Street, the name will probably have the word ‘Front’ in it.

We haven’t written any songs about the PhD process yet, but I suppose it’s a matter of time. We do a little bit of heavy metal, progressive metal, and conceptual rock. So far we covered a couple of songs by Muse. But now we’re trying to write our own songs.
