  • I won many fellowships and scholarships during my study at USC: Doctoral Fellowship, NSF Fellowship, University Research Fellowship, EERI Award, Teaching Scholarship, Research Scholarship, APSIH Special Award, etc.
  • I have been the lab instructor and TA of many undergraduate and graduate courses at USC. I instructed labs for Mechanics of Materials, Computer Software, Physics for Architects as well as Mechanics and Thermodynamics, and was a TA for CE 205, CE 207, CE 334, CE 507 and CE 537.

  • I was the lead TA for the department of Physics and Astronomy to train teaching assistants for their labs, and to supervise them. I hold this position for two consecutive years (2013-14).
  • I am also a technical reviewer for 6 journals, and frequently evaluate the submitted papers to these journals.
  • I am a triathlete, and an advanced yoga practitioner who can never leave an interesting philosophical or psychological article unread, or an inspiring TED video unwatched. I am also interested in piano, reading newspapers (Wall Street Journal), magazines (Psychology Today, Money and Entrepreneur) and books as well as attending music, cultural and sporting events.
