**Who I am: ** I am a second year faculty member at SUNY Potsdam.
Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the
University of Kentucky, working with Alberto Corso. I graduated from the
University of Michigan under the supervision of Karen Smith. My PhD thesis
was on jet schemes and truncated wedge schemes of monomial and
determinantal varieties. Before that, I transferred from Pasadena City College
to UC Berkeley and finished my undergraduate studies there. I did all my earlier
education in Hong Kong, where I was born. In 1997, my family moved to the
United States, of which I am now a citizen. I enjoy hiking, biking,
badminton, origami, juggling, and community volunteering services.

**Research Interests: ** Jet schemes, wedge schemes,
computational algebra, motivic integrals, and reductions and cores (beginner).

**Teaching: **

- Spring 2009: Math 152 (Calculus II), Math 340 (Set Theory and Logic), and Math 524 (Modern Algebra II).
- Fall 2008: Math 151 (Calculus I) and Math 340 (Set Theory and Logic).
- Spring 2008: Math 152 (Calculus II) and Math 423 (Modern Algebra I).
- Fall 2007: Math 151 (Calculus I) and Math 423 (Modern Algebra I).
