Hobbies

Running

I picked up running to control my pre-diabetes and stay healthy.

2013 Philadelphia Half Marathon

My first race ever was at 13:47/mi pace! I was happy to just finish the course.

2018 Philadelphia Marathon

I gradually increased my mileage to complete my first marathon at 9:13 /mi pace.

2020 Central Park 10K

I continued to train during my PhD years and set a personal record at 6:17/mi pace.


Climbing

I like that climbing exercises both the body and the mind.

On sunny, cool days, you'll find me bouldering in Central Park!

You can find videos of my favorite climbs here.

Cooking

I enjoy cooking Asian food and baking western recipes.

Gundams

I build, paint, and restore model kits of Gundam mechs.

Photography

I love to capture my favorite moments on camera. Photos on this page were captured on my X100F.

My photos have been featured in a New York Times newsletter ("Spreading the word about anti-Asian hate crimes") and an ABC News Segment ("Celebrating AAPI month and honoring those changing the future")
