Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

Growing up in a small town in Taiwan, I was expected to follow in the family business and join the sweater factory. However, in school I had always been more interested in math and science. When we moved to the Dominican Republic for a few years, I spent time learning English, exploring the different culture, and investing more and more time in math and science.  This opportunity opened my eyes to endless possibilities, and ultimately, planted a seed in me to see the world and pursue engineering.  

After finishing my undergraduate in mechanical engineering, I finally made the move from Taiwan to the US to further my education at the University of Washington. My PhD in electrical engineering led me to a few interesting jobs, but I always wanted to learn something more.

In 2017, I joined Xinova, but what I didn’t realize at the time was that Xinova would give me the ability to explore many other fields. Every day is a new challenge and opportunity to learn. I am proud to share with my family and friends all the new and exciting fields I am working with now.

When I am not engaging with Xinova’s network, I like to hang out with family, cycle and run along the PNW coast.
