“I need to emphasize this award is less reflective of my personal ability, and more of the love and support I’ve received from my parents, sisters, friends, teachers, and mentors. I want to especially thank Lev Sviridov, Paul Fogleman, Adam Liff, Mark Minton, Sue Murphy, Yea-Fen Chen, Marc Chien, Paul Helmke, and Mark Demario. Your encouragement in my life continues to inspire me, both personally and professionally.”
