|I am a Chinese graduate student in the Department of Biomedical Informatics. I graduated from East China Normal University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry, and started my graduate study at Vanderbilt University through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (IGP) in 2006. In August 2009, I received my Master's Degree in Biomedical Informatics and I'm currently working on my Ph.D. project under the direction of Dr. David L. Tabb.
In my spare time I am an amateur photographer immensely enjoying playing with light and lens. I like Vanderbilt not only because of its strong academic programs but also the excellent internal collaboration opportunities it provided in my graduate study. Besides, the great weather and relatively low living cost in Nashville made me never regret my choice. For incoming international students, I encourage you to talk to senior students and read through faculties' web pages to carefully select your rotation labs. For students who are non-native English speakers, I found the best way to improve the communication skills is to present the research work frequently and get involved in discussions.
