I was born on Aug. 1, 1967 in Taipei, Taiwan. I studied at Fu-Hsin Elementary School, Fu-Hsin Junior High School and Chien-Kuo Senior High School, before studying Electrical Engineering at NTU. After switching my major to Physics and got my PhD at Berkeley in 1996, I worked as a postdoc at University of Utah, Salt Lake City for two years (with the 2nd year at Princeton as a visitor). I came back to work at the Physics Department of NTU since 1998.
