Paul Daniel Ang
Danna finished the BS Applied Physics (Materials Physics) program magna cum laude in 2018 and was supported by a DOST-SEI Merit Scholarship. Danna's research involved developing methods to study the elastic and piezoelectric properties of hexagonal crystals with the Quantum ESPRESSO software package. Danna later pursued graduate studies in numerical weather and climate modeling, obtaining an MS degree in Meteorology from the UPD Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology in 2021. Danna is now a science research specialist at the Philippine Space Agency.
