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.

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. All 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")
