Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in iBio? 

Great lab, wealth of resources across campus and flexibility in the program

Why or what do you love about the program?

It has diverse scholarship

Fun fact: You will often find me volunteering and doing simultaneous interpretation in cultural organizations, particularly ones that build bridges between Chinese and English-speaking communities. In my spare time, I enjoy doing things meditative and relaxing, such as short hikes or people-watching at a café.
