Why do you teach online for the Post-Bacc program?
I enjoy the flexibility of online learning and I’ve been enjoying online teaching from my prior experience. I also made a career transition from a fundamental science (physics) to machine learning and computer science, and had both excitements and challenges along the way. I would like to help others being successful at their career pivoting.
What do you like to do outside of CU?
I’m a curious cat and I like to try new things from time to time. Over time, my hobbies converged to a few - including painting, riding a motorcycle, skiing/snowboarding, and water sports.
