Living in a city that has swallowed three of my umbrellas in rainstorms, I’m seeking advice on how to stay dry. Whether its the weather or my soup, I collect my thoughts on my blog.
Teaching computer science has been one of the most humbling and rewarding things I’ve done. Currently, I’m a TA for Computer Systems. Tell me your favorite GDB command or bit puzzle that stumped you recently.
I love asking this because it often leads to stories of relationships to food, whether it’s in the form of nostalgia for yellow-cake box mix or a firm preference for mooncakes. Whimsical or serious, I’m interested in food as a language. You can see the conversations I have on my Instagram stories.
Other than food, my main method of sustenance is books. My diet consists of generous helpings of Adrienne Rich, Haruki Murakami, Lauren Groff, and any story with the promise of dragons. Lately, I’ve been nibbling my way through Anna Karenina. You can keep up with my nutritional content here.
Growing up among ardent Disney fans, it was hard to love Chinese animated cartoons like Nezha. Last year, I became an editor of VISIONS, Brown/RISD’s visual arts and literary magazine. I am grateful and inspired to be apart of this community, to strive to amplify Asian American/Pacific Islander voices on campus. It has inspired me to start writing my own translation of Nezha.
I ice-skated for eleven years, competing from regionals to Nationals. Charlie White liked to tease me about my twizzles, and I trained with the same coaches as Nathan Chen and Gracie Gold.

Skating speaks to the things I love as an artist and scientist—how the details culminate in a moment of discovery.
