A little bit about myself...

Born and raised in a small city in the state of Delaware, I was the first-born son of Chinese immigrants, who came to the US to look for a better life. Like many immigrants, they found that better life by pursuing the educational opportunities this country had to offer. Their academic achievement inspired both me and my brother to continue the family tradition of "paying it forward" by helping others as educators.

After graduating with High Honor, in Math and Physics, at the ripe old age of 16 from Delaware State University, I pursued my dream of getting a PhD in Physics. I attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana -- one of the largest land-grant universities in the country. There I received a Masters degree with an emphasis in nuclear physics. After attending the beautiful campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, and turning my interests toward more mathematical pursuits, I joyously received my PhD, specializing in mathematical physics, from North Carolina State University. I am glad I did, for the degree paved the way to my present passion: teaching at Montgomery College.

I hope to see you in one of my physics classes so that I can share more with you about my own journey and passion for one of mankinds most fascinating and intricate treks of discovery-- understanding the physical universe we live in!
