HobbiesMy name is Steve, a current graduate student at Rice University, pursuing a Ph. D in Chemical Engineering. I have years of experience teaching in both casual and formal settings, and find nothing more satisfying than helping a student or a friend understand, enjoy, and even surpass me (qing chu yu lan!).
Outside of normal academics, I teach and perform Chinese yoyo around the university and the state. I also dance for Princeton University's Triple 8 Dance company and Rice University's Funkonomics Crew, where I choreograph, dance, and teach.
