I am currently a Ph.D. student in Computer Science & Engineering Department at the University of Washington. My research interest is in the area of bio-inspired robotics, biomedical device, mechatronics, control systems and telesurgery. It dates back to my hobby on making gadgets in my father's dental clinic. There were no Dremel tools at my age of 9, therefore the dental instruments and materials became my first tools upon which I could exert energy and materialize dreams. I enjoy the process of the innovation, from exploring new ideas to utilizing my knowledge to prototype them. That to me is a kind of joy which is almost unequalled.
