I obtained my B.S. in Physics from Peking University, where I developed a broad interest in utilizing the tools and methodology of statistical mechanics to unravel the mysteries in living systems. I was also fortunate enough to have spent a semester visiting the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics at Rice University, where I studied the fundamental limits in kinetic proofreading. Outside research, I enjoy musicals, sci-fi, and ping-pong. My ambition at Princeton, in addition to learning more about statistical mechanics and quantitative biology, is to become a better cook!
