### About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Mathematics department at Texas A&M University (TAMU). My research advisor is Professor Sarah Witherspoon.

I am co-organizing the Graduate Students Organization (GSO) seminar, which runs every Thursday at 4-5pm in Blocker 113. Please let me know if you would like to give a talk in the GSO seminar.

It is my honor to receive the **Ethel Ashworth-Tsutsui Memorial
Award for Research** for demonstrating excellence in research (Nov.
2013) and the **2013 L. F. Guseman Prize in
Mathematics** for outstanding research, teaching, and service as a
graduate student (April 2013).

My non-math hobbies include cooking, traveling, and reading. I love food and love to try/cook various cuisines. It is my favorite way to expose to different cultures, people, and backgrounds; and it goes very well with my travel interest.
