  • Bio
    My parents, both immigrants who left post-Cultural Revolution China to attend graduate school in the US, instilled a love of learning in me since day one. Naturally, I now find myself at the University of Chicago studying Economics. I was born in Boulder, where I skied my first slope; I have lived in Pittsburgh, where I read an entire bookshelf in the children's section; and I went to high school in Seattle, where I learned how to make coffee.
