I considered my 5 years I spent in the PhD program of EHS department
the best 5 years of my life. As an international student and knowing
nothing about my future, I was instantly welcomed by department faculty and
staff, and fully supported to be a full time student as well as a good scientist.
During those years, I grew up mentally, emotionally, and professionally.
Those experiences not only opened a door to my current research
career, but also helped me develop a fundamental scientific
sense to many future research possibilities. I am currently happily
working in Pfizer and I love my job.
