About Me

I'm a Research Assistant in the NRL lab, IIS, Academica Sinica in Taiwan. I was born in Changhua, grew up in Taiching, in my mind the most beautiful city in Taiwan, studied in Hsinchu, served the army in Taoyuan and Taitung, and then moved to Taipei for the job until now. Yes I spent my young years traveling around the wonderful island, Taiwan.

I like soprts and music. I enjoy listening to both classic music and pop music, and in my leisure time, I go play basketball or softball with my friends. They help my relax, as well as watching ESPN at night. I also like cooking! Currently I am learning different kinds of dishes, such as Chinese food, Thai food, Japanese food, or Italian food, and the smiles on the friends' faces after tasting can just satisfy me.
