EducationUniversity of Kansas, Double major in Mathematics and Physics (finished within 3 years); GPA: 3.8. (2010-2013)
Rice University, PhD in Physics, (2013--2018)
ExperienceCurrently, I am attending Rice University as a PhD student, working on Heavy Ion Nuclear physics at CMS, CERN. As an undergraduate student at University of Kansas, I finished my double majors, Mathematics and Physics, within 3 years. Starting from the second year, I became one of the official Tutors in Mathematics department, teaching Ordinary Differential Equations till the last day of my college. The reason as why I could finish two science degrees within 3 years is because I took 8 AP exams before I came to U.S, 6 of which were perfect scores. One and a half months of studying AP courses by my own not only helped my understanding of those subjects but also well prepared my college studies. (Also perfect scores of SAT 2 Physics and Maths.) In addition, I chose to be an undergraduate researcher in High Energy Nuclear Physics during the same time as a Maths tutor. In the summer of 2012 as well as winter 2013, I have gone to the Large Hadron Collider (CERN, Switzerland) to work on our projects from KU with those top physicists in the world. By the end of my undergraduate study, I finally became one of the authors on one of the published CMS notes.
HobbiesWith those years of passions in teaching, not only the students that I have taught improved their subjects, but also the experiences have provided myself an opportunity to help others and refreshed what I have known. It is always a pleasure to see how people gets better and make them become confident.
Besides the interests in physics, I also like backcountry hiking, climbing, and traveling around the world.
