Why Duke?

While chemistry is my primary academic interest, I also love creating art, making music, discussing ethics, and studying the narratives and history of the Asian American diaspora, among other things. I saw Duke as a place where I would have the opportunity to delve into cutting-edge chemistry, biochemistry, and pharmacology research while also having the freedom, resources, and community to develop my other interests.

During my time at Duke, I hope to further clarify and develop my academic and personal interests. To that end, I'm excited to encounter more topics, ideas, and people who will inspire, surprise, and challenge me.
