I was born in China, but my family moved to Switzerland when I was three years old. We moved from there to America when I was four and settled just outside Salt Lake City, Utah. I stayed in Utah through high school, and went to college at Cornell University. I received my BS degree from Cornell in 2008 from the Electrical and Commuter Engineering Department. I am currently at Johns Hopkins University pursuing my PhD, advised by . My research interests include medical image registration and spine segmentation.
