Why did you choose the Physiology Graduate Program?

I chose the physiology program at UCD due to combination of physiological and neuro-scientific studies within this specific department, while looking at processes of my interest.

Where did you attend for your undergraduate and your major/minor?

I went to University of California, Davis and majored in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior.

What do you like best about living in Colorado?

Colorado offers many different opportunities such as great climates and sceneries for hiking, camping, climbing, skiing and other sports. The ratio of income to expense here is better than other places I have lived before. There are also a lot of young people who live in Denver and Boulder, which makes it easy to meet new people with different aspirations.

What are a few of your favorites activities outside of school?

Soccer, camping, reading, hiking, socializing, swimming. There are really many things to do…..
