Year I started working at UBC:


Describe what you do at UBC in 10 words or less:

I develop numerical methods to understand human blood flow.

What's the best advice you ever received?

The best advice I have received was from my PhD advisor who once told "no matter how many papers you publish, what's your h-index value and how famous you become, all that matters at the end of the day is how much time you spend with your family and kids."

What is your favourite quote and why?

My all-time personal favourite quote reads "attitude in life should be like a wheat crop, the heavier the wheat grain, more the crop will bend." The metaphorical meaning is that it's very important to have humility no matter how much success one achieves. 

What do you do to ensure a healthy/work life balance?

I plan my week with a clear distinction between work time and personal time. Such a schedule has highly helped me to maintain the work-life balance as well as increase my work efficiency. Aside from work, I engage in multiple sport activities (hiking, biking, badminton, cricket) and meet with friends and relatives in the weekends.
