Believing in Nature as a book written in "the language of mathematics," I have always been interested in viewing biological phenomena from this perspective. Through studying biology and genetics, in particular, I have found that modeling and employing robust statistical methods offer effective ways of understanding the complex networks involved in all living creatures. For my future studies, I aim to enhance my wet lab skills to explore and focus on biological networks, such as gene regulatory networks and intraneuronal networks, among others. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about acquiring strong computational skills and mastering new programming methods to validate experimental results and present them creatively.
