Reading novels, hiking, traveling, cooking, and baking, learning new languages, watching, and following sports, collecting stationery (not sure is this hobby!), one last thing: meditating

Favorite Restaurant/Take-out

Cham Thai in Carrboro, I usually order Crispy tofu and Rad Nar.

If I Wasn’t a Pathologist, I Would Be…

Internist/Public health practitioner. Fun one: boba tea shop owner

Favorite Thing About Pathology

Pathology is the backbone of medicine. Pathology plays vital role in the patient care team in helping clinicians  accurately diagnose diseases, so that they can provide appropriate care and treatment for the patients!
