I graduated from UC Davis in 2017 with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Thanks to Dr. Tian who accepted me to join the lab as a research assistant when I was a sophomore undergraduate. The engineering of single-wavelength intensiometric neurotransmitter sensor topic opened my eyes to neuroscience. I later continued my research as a junior specialist for one year after graduation. I was accepted by the BMCDB graduate program at UC Davis in 2018. I will continue engineering novel sensors to understand more about neuroscience and biochemistry and push the field forward with the technologies that we developed in Tian Lab.

I Like to go skiing during winter and go surfing/racing in summer. The other two seasons? I guess you will find me in the lab more frequently.
